The way I read this elsewhere, is they're trying to ban the steal tipped ammo, not the over the counter 223, its the 556 green tip ammo. I doubt they'll get away with it without plenty of outrage and public response, but maybe we should all get out there and buy all the green tipped government ammo we can while its cheap, I did, but paid more for it when prices were high. I saw one company, can't remember which one, selling 20 rounds for $5.55 the other day. So if you need to top off, or just start building a stash, now is the time !!!!!!!
