View Full Version : Ammo

12-17-2008, 6:23 PM
I was reading a article the other day on the new Federal EFMJ rounds and the author pointed out that now that he is retired certain ammo that was okay to use when he was LE is now verboten as a civilian.

I have done searches on the DOJ/Firearms page as well as employ my superhuman Google-Foo and have come up empty-handed.

Does anyone have a good reference for what is and is not legal to load, as a civilian, with regards to ammo?
