    ATF/Obama Ban Popular 5.56 M855 Ammo

    You may have already heard about this but, if not, the ATF has reversed itself and now classifies the popular mil-spec M855 5.56 green tip ammo many of us buy for our rifles as "armor piercing" and thus illegal.

    Online sites inventory is dropping quickly.

    Here is an interesting article from 2011 discussing this ammo and why it is NOT armor piercing:

    This make them illegal to own or to buy or both?
    Things gun forums have taught me:
    -Some people shoot guns others "run" them.
    -I don't dislike Glocks but often dislike Glock owners.
    -Open carry is to a handgun as bluetooth is to a cell phone!
    -Simple math can deliver posts per day... some gun forum members need to get out more!!!
