View Full Version : 50 cal Ball is ALL STEEL CORE

For those who may not know, all 50 cal Ball ammo loaded since the 1920's has a mild steel core. It is not AP but is mild steel and will put a dent in anything on a shooting range that you hit with it. So, keep that in mind and don't damage stuff on the shooting range and get the 50's banned from yet another range. Some ranges will not allow any ammo that is attracted to a magnet so for those ranges the Amax or the brass/bronze solids will be your only option.
