M855 ban in the pipeline

Just a heads up for those AR-15 pattern rifle owners. The ATF is talking about banning the sale of M855 62gr steel tips. So if you like those, better think about stocking up.

Re: M855 ban in the pipeline

I think at this point it's obvious that the gun and ammo companies are in bed with then government. Sales are never higher than when something like this potential ban comes out. Kickback city for the Feds.

Re: M855 ban in the pipeline

ATF official confirms it is/was not only M855 they're after.
