A question for those of you in the know. Would a bullet described by the manufacturer as a "barrier defeating round" be illegal for us mortal citizens to posses?

Here is what I found. No where does it indicate "armor piercing".

Winchester Bullets 5.56mm (224 Diameter) 62 Grain Open Tip Match
Product #326584Winchester # E129958
“……Winchester’s 62 Grain Open Tip Match bullet was designed as a barrier defeating bullet to be loaded in their FBI contracted round………..”

Kinda' what I was thinking but ..................... just 'cause you can buy something openly doesn't necessarily make it legal. Just sayin' ...

Well, one of you guys/gals could always call the BATFE or the FBI and ask. If you do, don't mention my name please. :o

I thought the prohibition of armor piercing ammunition only applied to handgun bullets.
