SS109/M855 to be banned by the BATF
The ATF is moving forward to ban SS109/M855 ammunition. This is an extremely common round that AR-15 owners use. For those of us that buy in bulk, it’s one of the go-to types of 5.56.
I know a lot of preppers buy in bulk and will unfortunately be hurt by this ban. I want to encourage the users of this site to write the BATF about this and contact their representatives as well.
We try to stay away from politics and technically, this is. The ATF has essentially abused their ability to interpret laws. They are not elected officials and do not have the power to pass new laws. This is a very disturbing trend. Some of you will remember that this happened last year with imported 5.45 ammunition.
Here is how you can find your representatives contact information:
