The ATF has busted Elite Ammunition out of Harvard ILL for making brass bullets for the .223 and 6.8spc. Now I have bought barnes solid brass bullets in the past in 223 cal for yote hunting as it does not tear up the pelt.

But with this latest raid, the ATF says the 223 bullets are now classified as HANDGUN Cartridges. wtf wtf

It's sad but I'm starting to feel sick about the so called freedom of the West. I always tought you Americans were supposed to be THE example concerning freedom. Where did it go wrong? When did they vote this new law that allows burocraty to take over from common sence?

... I'm back in the saddle again... riding the ranch ones more... out where a friend is still a friend... where the only law is right...

sorry, but I'm a little mixed up.

Update: Heres a link to the company's website and this page does indeed show a letter from the president that they were busted last month. How in the world can they reclassify a 223 cartridge as a handgun cartridge? wtf

Barnes also makes brass 223 bullets, and there are other companies out there plus making solid copper bullets. Time will tell what happens.

ATF just needs to go away, Rat bastards.

It seems to me like the creeps at the ATF are testing the waters. Seeing what they can get away with before people start making a concerted effort to stop them. To date, they have been met with relatively mild resistance. I don't think this is the extent of it, but the beginning of a campaign to tighten firearm restrictions a little at a time. I know it sounds alarmist, but the ATF is in the news too often for my liking.

Don't they have a history of going overboard? Waco, Ruby Ridge, "Gunrunner", ...

Time to buckle down and take a stand against these dictators...yep DICTATORS !!

Isn't this what your Second Amendment is all about? It seems to me that there are a couple of people at the top of the BATF that are calling the shots...or at least authorising the "shots" put forward by someone beneath them. If you guys do not take a stand now, then they (the BATF and Govt) will take another step...as controversial, if not more so, than the last. It will be as I have said in the past..."death by a thousand cuts".

I am not advocating "taking up arms against your Govt"...but you need to get the entire shooting fraternity together as one body and take Court action against the BATF and their hierarchy...for the sake of your firearm ownership and that of future generations.

Good Luck guys...it seems you may need it in the long run.

Cheers, Vince

Actually, if it wasn't for the retards that vote, they wouldn't be able to get away with stuff like this.

Now that the 223 Remington is a pistol cartridge, what are they going to do about the millions of FMJ 223 rounds out there?

.223 is a LR round. This won't stand. They tried a similar HG ammo thwart thing here in Ca and it failed. Too many cartridges are "antique" and started as LR rounds.

Just another fine example of our Gvt wasting it's time and my money on usesless BSt. Gunrunner was already debunked. 90% of guns, phones, grenades, ammo, trucks, cars, all that gear are stolen or coming form Central/South America. But how often do you hear that side of the ball from Billary?

This helps the economy and creats jobs how again? Since the pork-u-lus failed the Lib's have been scrambling to try an save face....know anyone that has a carreer due to the stimulus? I dont, nor does anyone I know.

Mean while our credt rating just took a crap. Our infrastructure is STILL in shambles and we are looking at another downgrade in 12 mos. if we dont get those damn super-spending libs off the hill.

Obama just came on saying "I said change we can believe in, not change over night!" Will he ever stop the backpedaling and blame game? Kerry just said the Tea Party is responsible for the downgrade. China said yesterday the spending and socialist programs are the cause!

Way to go Obama Administration! Here's to 3 years of epic FAIL and ignoring the People and the Constitution!

I say REVOLT. We need a Federal Govt like a hole in the head. Liberterian State is the way. LIBERTY...look it up. Screw the Union! We have chaos and debt because of them, not because of the People!

We really need to break up the "good 'ole boys club" in Congress and the Senate. They are all "horse trading" with each other to get what they want with out a thought as to what you and I might want or need. In the next election, we need to put up candidates that have never held office before. There are plenty of intelligent, honest, hard working Americans that could do the jobs of our Congressmen, and Senators. NO ONE should vote for someone that has held the office before…… Worried about a confusion in Government? What do we have now??? These knuckleheads are totally disfunctional. They willl collapse our economy before they give up their pet PORK project. All they manage to do is E-mail pictures of their franks and beans to some young intern, and then going in to vote on a bill questioning our ability to be responsible with firearms. wtf They need to become unemployed!!!

Stovie, I need to borrow your mallet!

So if a 223 is a pistol cartridge then is a 500 S&W a field artillery piece?
