Gun owners dodged a bullet — metaphorically, of course — when the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives announced that it intended to ban commonplace M855 ball ammunition as “armor-piercing ammunition” and then later withdrew the proposal.
When BATFE released its “Framework for Determining Whether Certain Projectiles are ‘Primarily Intended for Sporting Purposes’ Within the Meaning of 18 U.S.C. 921(a)(17)(c)” edict, that meant the M855 round’s exemption to the armor-piercing ammunition prohibition null and void, and even worse, make future exemptions nearly impossible.
