Federal, Remington and Winchester all offer LE only ammunition. For example, Remington has the bonded version of the Golden Saber which was specifically designed to perform well in the FBI’s testing protocol. Keep in mind passing all aspects of the FBI’s testing protocol does not mean the bullet is any better at stopping bad guys, only that it is very good at shooting through things like wall board, cloth and auto glass.
At any rate, what about this LE Only ammo? Should cops be allowed to carry ammo that law abiding citizens cannot? In truth, a cop is nothing more than a law abiding citizen that has taken a oath.
You should also know that it is not illegal for anyone to own or use LE Only ammo. LE Only ammo is just ammunition that manufacturers ONLY market to law enforcement agencies.Look around on the WEB and you can find it for sale. On one hand, you have to acknowledge the notion that if LE ammo was sold direct to civilians, the anti-gunners could argue against the manufacturer in the case of a shooting. On the other hand, why have a designation between LE and non LE ammo? Oh, I know, it is a marketing tool to get LE agencies to buy ammo.
