Can’t use those, those would violate the Geneva Convention, close that HP tip or it’s illegal.

I’m gonna guess this was a stock photo taken with off-the-shelf civilian ammo.


The open tip is considered a byproduct of manufacture and not intended to cause expansion. This type of bullet has already been ruled on and are legal.


The Geneva Convention doesn’t limit small arms ammunition whatsoever. That would be The Hague Convention, which the Senate never ratified, and thus we are not party to. Also, it’s not HP specifically that are restricted, it’s bullets designed to create multiple wound channels after penetration, HP were just an example given. All in all it doesn’t matter anyway, no one in the foreseeable future is going to try and legitimately roast us in the legal sense for not abiding by a treaty in which we aren’t a legal party to begin with.


I hope their ammo is better than their scopes!!


It is just this simple–lowest bid gets the deal!
