    here is one link I have, but have seen many more on just the AP ammo.
    It seems to be making a comeback of sorts, I have seen more of it for sale myself.

    The AWB did sunset, that is true. But what did not is trade embargo's on countries that export this kind of ammo. If anyone is able to import this stuff, kudos to them but I've not seen it and I get around ;)

    I talked with my dad and he said something along the same lines with this.

    Mine is circa 1992 and has been stored in sealed ammo cans with silica packs which is just about the newest you can get as far as that goes ;)

So there was a big controversy as to whether to switch to 6.8 for the extra stopping power. Turned out that when they switched back to lead core the issues went away. 6.8 is going away like the betamax. Also it should be noted that almost if not all indoor ranges have banned steel core not because of clinton, but because it penetrates their "traps" and it gets costly to repair and maintain. Just one point I wanted to make before I go to bed, The rifle or the ammo isn't nearly as important as a well aimed shot. Steel core ammo is very cool though! Especially shooting at steel plates 300-500 yards!!!!!
    Yeah, its a rangemaster's worst nightmare ;) I agree with you on shot placement. As long as you can put them minute-O-coconut you'll be fine no matter what you're shooting! The .30 caliber AP round is definitely more effective at taking someone down then the M855 62 gr tungsten core AP round that our military is using in Iraq or Afganistan though.

    Just out of curiousity, did some nation recently locate a stockpile of the stuff or something? I had never seen it before this past weekend, but several tables at the gun show had large amounts of 7.62x39 AP and tracer ammo. I thought it was odd, but interesting.
