BATFE has ruled that, even if the ammo can be fired in some handguns, U.S. military AP ammo (.30, 7.62, and 5.56) is not "armor piercing" as defined in the law because the steel component is not a large enough percentage of the total mass to meet the "constructed entirely" part of the definition.

But that does not apply to all-steel or steel core bullets used in some foreign ammo.
