Thanks OP for the ATF link.

It might be worth stickying this for a few days, I would think.

You're right, but that doesn't matter. They're gonna do whatever they want. And somebody at the BATF is getting a big attaboy from Zero for this.

Given the fact that the law was written as the result of hysteria and not because of some real problem, one should not expect it to have some connection with reality.

In fact, its best if one NEVER expects a connection between the products of Congress and reality.

Really?

ii) a full jacketed projectile larger than .22 caliber designed and intended for use in a handgun and whose jacket has a weight of more than 25 percent of the total weight of the projectile.”

Was the 5.45x39mm 7n6 designed and intended for use in a handgun, or did someone design a handgun to make use of this rifle ammo?

And to go after the section they used against us:

a projectile or projectile core which may be used in a handgun and which is constructed entirely (excluding the presence of traces of other substances) from one or a combination of tungsten alloys, steel, iron, brass, bronze, beryllium copper, or depleted uranium; or

There is a hell of a lot more than a trace of lead in the core here.

Eventually, yes. 5.45 will probably end up being a little higher, just because there are so many more 7.62x39 guns.

No. It's a bullshit reading. The ammo was NOT designed to be used in a handgun. The opposite is true.

So the 7N6 just uses more steel? Well that's stupid...

It doesn't need to be designed for use in a handgun, per the statute. Read the whole thing, not just the part that confirms your bias.

So the way I read this, it really had nothing to do with a pistol being imported or converted or manufactured.


It has everything to do with an anti-gun politician pulling the strings of a local customs office to "inquire" about this round.



Or am I missing something here?


If I am right, we can brace ourselves now on 54r, it will be next without a question.

My guess is it was because Uncle Sam used to sell off his surplus ammo and didn't want to legislate himself out of a market. Not so much anymore.

The dispute is over what makes up the "core" of the bullet.
You think it's one thing, everything inside the jacket. They determined it's another, the steel insert.
The determination is exactly the same as the one made years ago concerning M43.

Quick question for our legal eagle types:


1. FFLs cannot legally sell AP handgun ammo to civilians.
2. BATFE just ruled 5.45x39 7n6 is handgun AP ammo
3. What happens to the FFLs that still have this in stock and are still selling it??

No. It's a bullshit reading. The ammo was NOT designed to be used in a handgun. The opposite is true.
It doesn't need to be designed for use in a handgun, per the statute. Read the whole thing, not just the part that confirms your bias.


I'm not biased...I actually read the statement wrong and thought they were using the second part of the definition. They're using the first part, and its still bullshit because it doesn't meet that part of the definition either. The projectile/core is NOT constructed entirely of the materials listed. So again, it doesn't match the definition.

Doesn't matter. They're going to do what they want either way. And most people, including most gun owners, won't care.

READING IS FUNDAMENTAL

When ATF tested the 7N6 samples provided by CBP, they were found to contain a steel core.
View Quote


22 caliber, 21 caliber or 50 caliber means abso-fucking-lutely zero.

They determined it has a steel core. End of story unless and until a court overturns the determination
under the applicable standard of review.

What we need to be doing is setting the NRA to work to amend the statute, or file a lawsuit to overturn
the determination. Wailing about it ain't gonna help.

Really?

ii) a full jacketed projectile larger than .22 caliber designed and intended for use in a handgun and whose jacket has a weight of more than 25 percent of the total weight of the projectile.”

Was the 5.45x39mm 7n6 designed and intended for use in a handgun, or did someone design a handgun to make use of this rifle ammo?


And to go after the section they used against us:

a projectile or projectile core which may be used in a handgun and which is constructed entirely (excluding the presence of traces of other substances) from one or a combination of tungsten alloys, steel, iron, brass, bronze, beryllium copper, or depleted uranium; or

There is a hell of a lot more than a trace of lead in the core here.


The dispute is over what makes up the "core" of the bullet.
You think it's one thing, everything inside the jacket. They determined it's another, the steel insert.
The determination is exactly the same as the one made years ago concerning M43.


I guess they are going to argue the lead is part of the jacket and not the core somehow.

Yep, this is correct.

Accordingly, the ammunition is “armor piercing” under the section 921(a)(17)(B)(i) and is therefore not importable.

Not trolling, just curious as AIM was smart enough to blow this out the door before the ruling came down, but a few other retailers bought up their supply (~400 cans) and tried to flip it for a huge profit.

It doesn't need to be designed for use in a handgun, per the statute. Read the whole thing, not just the part that confirms your bias.

I had wondered how they treated solids.
If they pushed a lead free ban through it would make everything AP.

Only if you define the core as everything just under the jacket.

I don't think it's too out of line to look at the bullet design, and say "Umm...the core is solid steel".

Look, I hate the law, I'd repeal it yesterday, and I'll even say it's poorly written, but it's an honest interpretation of it. Stevie Wonder saw this coming.

fucked.

This is honestly a huge blow to my shooting. I always knew the day could come but loved my '74s and 5.45 ARs more than any other guns, so I have maybe a couple more in that caliber than was maybe reasonable. So ammo will skyrocket and the guns that shoot it will plummet in value. With .22 being non existent, decent 556 about the same cost as crappy 308, I just dont see much fun in shooting right now when it costs so much and is looked down upon so heavily. maybe its time to thin the herd and get back into hot rods but then gas isnt any cheaper...

Go back and read the notice again. The determination is based on the FIRST subparagraph, which doesn't contain the words "designed" or "intended".

Wanna bet all that stuff was "transferred" to non-FFL holders (like their wife) prior to the determination,

and they have notarized bills of sale to prove it? Cash transaction too, probably for exactly what they

paid for it. No tax due that way since it's a wash............

Unfortunately, the courts give a great deal of deference to administrative agencies when determinations such as this are challenged.
