LOOKING FOR 1000rds OF 762X51 A,P. .. NO RELOADS,, AND AT A REASONABLE PRICE,, THANKS
I do not think you will find any. I seem to recall that they fall under one of the armor piercing ammo laws and are as such illegal to sell.

My memory is a bit fuzzy on this so I am sure someone will come by.

Also, I am not sure 7.62 nato was made available to the general public in AP, I know 30-06 was.

7.62 nato AP? Care to shoot a link to the ammo...

I have never seen CMP sell 7.62 AP. they were selling 30-06 AP for a time but I was under the impression that it has been gone for years.
Sorry, I meant AP in 30.06 from the CMP. They were selling it up till 2 years ago and you never know what they may have in the pipeline.

When they came out with AR pistols in 308 caliber that is when the problem began as I understand it.
No armor piercing ammo allowed in a pistol cartridge, period. Remember the Black Talon rounds? "Cop killing bullets" are not politically correct these days.

I remember reading back in the 80's that no AP 7.62 x 51 was ever released for civilian sale and the ATF considered any found to be considered stolen.

Actually you are on the right path but it was not the AR's behind the ban but it was the fact that the Thompson contenders introduced a pistol in 7.62x51 which made it illegal. You can not have any caliber AP round that is also a pistol cartridge that being said you will be hard pressed to find it and even if you do is it worth it? Think wisely grasshopper :nono:

I see .30 AP bullets advertised from time to time so I guess you COULD reload some if you were so inclined but be watchful of the alphabet boys. Toolmanm203 nailed it.

I believe the Remington XP-100 and the Desert Eagle "Lone Eagle" pistols could both be bought in that caliber, therefore making it a pistol round and making the AP illegal to sell to the general public in "loaded ammo" form.

Not that I know, but I have heard that the m2ap loaded in 7.62x51 still penetrates very well and does a subperb job loaded in a 300 win mag. You can do a word search and you will probably find the same reports I have read.
