    Barnaul 7.62x39 SP, .223 brass

    86 rounds by my count.

    I also have 100 rounds PMC bronze .223. Since it is prohibited maybe you want to buy the primed/unfired brass?

    $50 for the Barnaul ammo, $40 for .223 reloading components. You can pick up or I can meet you in Nelson/Marlborough region (home show this weekend ) or even Christchurch in a month or so, just pm if you need any clarification. Cheers

    He probably means, like me, it has come out of a rifle that has been prohibited. I'll have a bunch of this for sale after they chew up my mini 14 and 30
    Unless I buy a bolt 223 and 7.62.

    Or he's got the wrong end of the stick
    as mentioned only armour piercing and tracer rounds have gone as far as I know

    If you are prepared to drop your price on the 7.62 ammo to match the .223, I could be keen on it. Nelson based too.

    Only bullets with a hardened core intended to improve its armour penetration capabilities are banned under the "armour piercing bullets" heading.

    As far as I understand it tracers can be deactivated by pulling the bullets and soaking in a solvent, or by filling the rear cup with a compound that prevents the propellant gases from reaching the ignition compound in the tail of the tracer contents. But if you have time to pull tracers it is probably best to just seat a more accurate bullet in its place, still dunk the tracers you pull to keep them legit.

    Flechettes appear to actually not have been banned as the OIC wrongly defines them as being "light", whereas they are usually made of tungsten etc. They were a useless military flop anyway and I've never heard of anyone even playing with them, except of course cartridge collectors.

    Hopefully that intended bit is upheld....
    For more potential fun look up Gamo PBS armour air gun pellets

    Ever seen what a cannister round loaded with flechette can do? Dunno what the point of the OIC mention was for it though as it appears that only flechette ammo is banned not the actual flechette item itself (which isn't ammunition or a projectile as such).
