Problem is not too many ranges will allow you to shoot it, at least in my vicinity.

Why? Isn't it brass casing?

The SS109 bullet has a steel core. A lot of ranges will not let you use it if it sticks to a magnet.

Must be a SOCAL thing, here in the SF Bayarea our ranges don't have this concern..At least not at Chabot..

Jackson Arms wont allow it, at least not for rifles.

Most of the ranges down here are on forest land and they don't allow it. I don't know whether it is their own rules or the forest service made it but steel jacket and steel core can't be used. I was told it has to do with potential fire hazards should it spark on a rock or steel target. Out in the desert we can use what ever we want.

The USFS won't allow it just like they require the usage of biodegradable birds. I honestly can't disagree with not allowing it though as we are extremely dry in SOCAL in fact the Angeles NF (where APS is) is under "extreme" conditions right now and if you've ever shot a steel plate at night with some of the steel core surplus ammo youl know you can have a nice light show in some instances which in our dry condition is tempting fate. Also it tears up a range's steel targets, even the 3/4" 550 armor, which only raises the costs to maintain the range.

I guess it doesn't matter as they are sold out.
