I disagree completely. There should be no law on ammunition, period.

Your idea would lead to the banning of FMJ first, and the rest in short order.

I've seen it reported numerous times that guns taken from criminals often have a hodgepodge mix of ammo, most likely from different stolen sources. Otherwise they typically have FMJ, presumably because it's the cheapest.
I think he means actual ammo used in a crime, not the type of ammo used in a crime.

I enjoy his videos but that one is killing my eyes going in and out of focus.

I have 855 ammo, but i ended up switching to 193 due to some places not allowing the 855/green tip ammo. But as the video says its going to drive the price up on ALL ammo.
It will temporarily drive the price up on other 5.56 FMJ, if for no other reason than the law of supply and demand. All the M855 buyers are now M193 buyers, and that means an increase in demand for M193, without there having been a pre-scheduled increase in production to offset the demand.

As soon as I got this news, I went into "hoarding" mode. I probably have something like 2,000 M855/SS109 on hand, not counting any of the other variants I have for this caliber. It goes without saying that I won't be shooting any of it until I know that it is replaceable. I also have a couple thousand M193 on hand, and as long as that is replaceable, I'll buy it at the higher price and shoot it, and keep my current inventory intact. But I also buy and have on hand a fair amount of 55 grain soft point (a better choice for SD in my opinion) as well as 68/69/75/77 grain HPBT match.

Agreed - I have 3 large ammo boxes full of M855, but I never shoot it. In the DFW area there really aren't any ranges you can use it. I've always been surprised by how much is in stores considering this fact. The lead core stuff is the same price everywhere I've been.
