According to a quick internet search you need a license from the ATF to manufacture ammo (probably with intent to sell as you don’t need a license to sell pre-manufactured ammo) and you may only sell armor piercing ammo to government agencies.

“In 1986 Congress amended the Gun Control Act of 1968 (“GCA”) and imposed significant controls over “armor piercing ammunition.” The restrictions (1) prohibit the manufacture and importation of armor piercing ammunition; (2) authorize the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (“ATF”) to revoke the license of any licensed dealer who willfully transfers armor piercing ammunition; (3) impose marking requirements on such ammunition; and (4) require licensees to keep records of disposition of armor piercing ammunition.”

The article is poorly written, but I think the crime is tracer ammunition.

The tracer and armor-piercing ammo is illegal if it sold by anyone other than an FFL dealer.

Only if you sell it.

It is illegal to sell your handloads without a ffl.
