additionally its just the steel core ammo i think. if the ban goes through someone will start making it with lead cores in same cal and selling domestically.

On March 5, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) received a  request from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency (CBP) to conduct a test, examination and classification of Russian-made 7N6 5.45x39 ammunition for purposes of determining whether it is considered  “armor piercing ammunition” as defined by the Gun Control Act (GCA), as amended. Since 1986, the GCA has prohibited the importation of armor piercing ammunition unless it is destined for government use or testing.  The imported ammunition about which CBP was inquiring was not destined for either excepted purpose.

it only affects the russian made ammo. typically steel core not lead

But here's the real head scratcher:

"On March 5, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) received a  request from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency (CBP) to conduct a test, examination and classification of Russian-made 7N6 5.45x39 ammunition for purposes of determining whether it is considered  “armor piercing ammunition”"

So the CBP want's to know if that ammo the ATF gave the Mexican's to shoot at the CBP was ammo piercing.  :coocoo: :rolling eyes:
