The ban on “Steel Jacketed” 7.62x54R surplus ammo has been lifted. It has been determined that bullets with “Steel Jackets” will not do any significant damage to the bullet traps. Therefore the magnet test on bullets is no longer the critical test to determine if a bullet may, or may not, be fired on the range. The magnet can still be used to determine that a bullet definitely does not contain any steel. If a bullet “is not” attracted to the magnet then it is most likely safe to shoot. But, just because “it is” attracted to the magnet is does not definitely determine that it cannot be fired on the range.
The ban on “Steel Cored” ammo is still in effect. This includes AP and penetrator rounds. These will have a painted tip. The ban on tracer, incendiary, explosive, etc… bullets remains in effect. These should also have painted tips. Please do not confuse painted tips with plastic tips. Plastic tipped bullets are allowed on the range. These include: Hornady A-Max, Nosler Ballistic Tip, and other similar commercial hunting and target bullets.
The new rules are now the same as they were before the bullet traps were starting to be installed with the inclusion of the ban on steel cored bullets. By steel cored we are talking mainly about AP and penetrator type rounds.
