If you roll through a stop sign and cop doesn't see you, are you breaking the law?


It can't be "armor piercing" and denied from importation and not "armor piercing" when it comes to sales to unlicensed individuals.


I use quotation marks because - under the U.S. Code - 7n6 does not meet the legal definition of "armor piercing ammunition". This is yet another "ruling" pulled from the fœtid nether regions of the bureaucrats.

apparently the deal is, no ffl can import or sell it, however no one on the low key level is prosecuted for it, this is why some people will sell it on and off

You can sell what's already here, you just can't import anymore. PWA got caught with their shipment setting in a Free Trade warehouse which technically hadn't finished the import process when it was banned from import, effectively trapping their shipment.
It's perfectly legal to sell 7n6 that had already cleared customs.

No, it's not.

. . . that no enforcement action has yet to take place doesn't void the law.


It was banned from importation for being "armor piercing handgun ammunition".

"APHA" is illegal for dealers to sell to the unlicensed.


It can't be illegal to import and not illegal to sell to unlicensed folks.

Nalioth is definitely right. They shouldn’t be selling it. I don’t know if you all are aware of this bill, but this would over turn that ruling, as well as make those Saigas and Veprs not the brilliant investment everyone’s thinking they are right now. Probably won’t make it very far, but it’s good to know we have some on our side in Congress.

...they're saying in the Q&A/comments section that this isn't 7n6...it's "something else"...?

Looks like all my other 7n6 to me NC marking on the first line of the can = ball ammo(with a mild steel core) to the best of my knowledge. I know that the armor piercing ammo was 7n10 that had a tungsten core that was legit ap round.

I don't have a spam can of 7n6 but from what I recall it sure looks like it to me. I think the picture that somewhat obscures the can top was likely done purposefully and the three Q&A responses, from 3 "different" people, all say the exact same thing. I was hoping that someone that does have a spam can of 7n6 handy would weigh in and I appreciate the response. Even with $30 shipping/insurance it's a decent deal and I've been wanting to add at least a spam can of 7n6 to my inventory to have handy but since Backpage went down finding it locally isn't easy...

I don't see anything in that bill that would remove sanctions on on Russian companies, though? Just removal of sporting purposes.
I do enjoy seeing the HPA isn't dead, though

Edit: Never mind, nothing's happened to it in 9 months.

Guys I just got into 5.45. Is everyone agreed this is 7n6 despite the "community answers" to the contrary on Buds website? I need to start stacking some 5.45 and would like to get a few of these.

Nails is correct and if it is 7N6 buds can get its tits in the wringer.. NO FFL is alowed to sell ammo that was ruled AP ammo...even AP- Rifle ammo.. individuals can sell it but no FFL's can...J&G tried a few months back and quickly pulled their Ad.. there was a big thread about it..
