What is the deal with steel core ammo?

Please help cure my ignorance.

I was visiting a friend in Brazil a few month back and we spent some time shooting steel targets. We used some steel core ammo that was fun to punch holes in 3/8 in steel plates.

When I came back to the states I looked it up on line for a few min and found nothing. Yesterday I was telling a friend about my trip to Brazil and he informed me that steel core ammo is not legal in the USA. Is this true and when did it happen?

I was living out side the USA from 1983 to 1998 so apparently while I was gun they banned this ammo?

p.s. I am not looking to buy any thing or to do any thing against the law I am just wondering how it came about and if it affects all calibers and older ammo.
Always looking for a good hunt!
