M855 doesn't fit the criteria EITHER is the point, even if it wasn't exempt for military reasons.

The SOT that got the letter wants to bring it in and sell it to you....as they have done in the past with hundreds and hundreds of millions of rounds of various calibers. Unless something changes, they will not be bringing in anymore 5.45 military surplus ammo.

Are you saying that the importer/SOT has conspired to disallow the import of this ammo and thus not make any money on it?

IF ATF takes the same position on SC 545 as they have in the past with SC 762x39, FFLs will not even be able to legally sell the inventory they have on hand..so where is the money in that? You think JY benifits from high ammo prices? His students require ammo, if it is priced too high or unavailable then naturally less folks are gonna train...

Because there is zero wiggle room for them in the definition in the federal code. They do not have any "interpretive" power or regulatory discretion here. The definition is too explicit and specific for any of their fast-and-loose games to stand up for even a moment to a well-placed lawsuit, and the last thing they want to risk is a ruling against them that builds unfavorable precedent.

Do I believe they want to? Hell yes. They'd line us all up and shoot us if they thought they could get away with it. But I also believe they're cagey enough to look at this with a risk-benefit analysis and know that they stand very little chance of their normal shenanigans working in this instance, and the likelihood and magnitude of setbacks seriously outweigh what they might gain from it.



So you are saying the letter/email is not from ATF and is in fact a complete fabrication?

If yes, who do you think fabricated it and what do they stand t gain?

Because it is specifically written into the law as exempt, by name. So is M2 AP.

As to why it was written in? Who knows.

Because there was a time when Uncle Sam would sell us his surplus ammo.

James Yeager could post on Facebook "Obama is a douchebag" and GD would suddenly come to Obama's defense and say Yeager was an idiot.

GD is pretty much well trained to immediately respond to anything Yeager says or does with a mixture of and and

The SOT that got the letter wants to bring it in and sell it to you....as they have done in the past with hundreds and hundreds of millions of rounds of various calibers. Unless something changes, they will not be bringing in anymore 5.45 military surplus ammo.

Are you saying that the importer/SOT has conspired to disallow the import of this ammo and thus not make any money on it?

IF ATF takes the same position on SC 545 as they have in the past with SC 762x39, FFLs will not even be able to legally sell the inventory they have on hand..so where is the money in that? You think JY benifits from high ammo prices? His students require ammo, if it is priced too high or unavailable then naturally less folks are gonna train...

Use some critical thinking skills people...


Which importer is it exactly?



If they were interested in making their name public then it is safe to assume that the whole document would have been posted and not just the lower half...that MAC fellow pretty much backs this up in his post on the matter...


People that sell shit always want to make their name public. Whoever MAC is doesn't really back up with common sense, internet backlash? I would bet the majority of this so called importer's sales would come from the internet. I've received emails through my business from importers trying to get their name out there and sell me a truckload of 5.45x39, 7.62x54, other surplus rounds. I don't see why they would try to hide it in this rumor.

Kind of like the way Ares turned its whole ATF thing into a massive marketing campaign.

MAC is neither a liar nor a coward. Have you read his blog posting on this?



He was referring to Yeager.
Right... MAC is "the more credible" source


So it appears that one guy says "X" and it's a lie and a fabrication, another guy says "X" and it's gospel....

LOL


Credibility, how does it work?

I have an extremely hard time believing otherwise without further credible evidence.

If yes, who do you think fabricated it and what do they stand t gain?


Somebody who stands to benefit from inducing a panic-driven buying frenzy of 5.45mm. There's no shortage of individuals or companies that fit that profile.

So far the only "proof" has been a cellphone picture of a printout of an email supplied by an anonymous but "credible" source to a single blogger. Every other appearance of the letter since then is a repost of that original image or story. There has been NO corroborating evidence or similar cases come forward. That's weaksauce "proof".

Combined with the total objective ineligibility of 7n6 for a ban under either clause of the armor-piercing ammunition definitions in federal statute, I believe this about as far as I can throw Heavy 6.

It doesn't matter, the panic is apparently already in full swing.

AIM Surplus and USAC are both sold out now.

USAC has a stock quantity counter on their site so they have sold at least 1500 tins since 0800 today.

Well, the next few hours are going to be very exciting for the 5.45x39 market.

So the NSSF is spinning up a lawsuit to get an injunction, right? Since submitting a pistol in 5.45 doesn't have jack-shit to do with the law.
