    Well it has WRA 64 on the rim and a little cross inside of a circle above that.

    It depends. If its not a collectable round I would say .50-.75 a peice. I see that is what the 06 rounds go for with no military box. Personally I would just shoot it. It cool ammo but doesnt like to stop.

    criminalpoet,

    Before deciding whether or not to sell your stash of 7.62x51 AP ammunition you need to read this page from the ATF:

    http://www.atf.gov/firearms/legal/armor.htm

    Best.

    Cross in circle means that it complies with NATO standards as far as weight, velocity, etc.

    Thanks for the link! However from what I have read the information seems to only pertain to lincensed persons or manufacturers being involved in maufacturing or importing, or selling commercially, armor piercing ammunition. Am I wrong? I dont fit into any of the above mentioned catagories as I am just a private non-licensed individual selling private stock. If I am wrong though somebody please tell me lol! I dont want to be breaking the law in any way. I do see people selling steel core 7.62x39 ammo all of the time without incident, and that too is on the list!

    What is stranger still is that the definitions in i & ii both refer ONLY to handgun ammunition.

    Correct...... Rifle AP ammo is legal here in Calif, but not handgun AP.

    As far as "cop killer" designations FWIW- there are VERY few makes and models of body armor that will stop ANY 30-06 or .308 catridge fired from a rifle. That includes soft tip, ballistic tip, FMJ, AP, or tracer. Vests were intended for protection from HANDGUN ammo. Remember that .308 or .06 will shoot thru an M113 Armored Personnel Carrier!

    Reloadable brass is cool, the bullet doesn't matter too much unless it's a tracer.

    Exactly correct!!! There are some handgun rounds that would surprise you on how well they will defeat a vest. Vests are not bullet proof, just bullet resistant.
