NRA magazine -- ALL M855 victory and NO 7n6 defeat
Not one word about 7n6 in this May article, because that ban slipped by without most of the American gun-owning public, policymakers, or gun lobbyists even raising an eyebrow. The NRA lost that fight, but then again, it scarcely even lifted a finger to resist. But all of that doesn't fit the current M855 narrative--that NRA stood ready and jumped into action to prevent reinterpretation of "sporting purposes" clauses, reclassification of pistol vs. rifle ammunition, and so forth. They failed.
