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.

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

You misunderstood me.

M855 and M2 AP are legally EXEMPT from ever being classified as armor piercing by BATFE. The same law that came up with this bullshit made those two off limits. Yes, M2 AP (ARMOR PIERCING) is legally exempt from being classified as ARMOR PIERCING by BATFE.

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?

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.

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??

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.

I've actually been calling for a challenge playing the race card.

Banning cheap ammo would have a disparate impact on poor people from exercising their second amendment rights, since African Americans and Hispanics make up the majority of the poor. I've sold piles of AK-74 mags to Hispanic Americans.

READING IS FUNDAMENTAL

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


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.

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.

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??


ya don't sell it.. you use it as test rounds.. Or transfer to a type 9 FFL.

you be trolling now, bro..


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.

Honestly, it's a fair reading of the statute. A bullshit statute to be sure, but...any honest reading of the GCA would lead you to the same conclusion.


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.


eggzactaly! thats why barnes had to pull all the brass non HP bullets that make in .224 and 30 cal last year. HP is OK non HP is AP. Since there are now handguns that shoot both .224 and 30 cal..


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

I've actually been calling for a challenge playing the race card.

Banning cheap ammo would have a disparate impact on poor people from exercising their second amendment rights, since African Americans and Hispanics make up the majority of the poor. I've sold piles of AK-74 mags to Hispanic Americans.

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.
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".

My understanding was that there wasn't yet a final determination about the Barnes solids. Has that changed?

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............

no, because the lead free stuff is usually sintered metal and not a solid.

Sintered vs solid isnt part of the law.

Unfortunately, the courts give a great deal of deference to administrative agencies when determinations such as this are challenged.
Anyone making the argument that BATFE is wrong will have a difficult time.
