I don't know, but I would say even one is one too many. Why do you ask?

I don't know why you wouldn't just research it yourself, but here are two....

no "cop killer" rounds needed. A regular .223 round fired from an AR-15 will pierce body armor easily

Moved the goal post on me there. They were killed by the ammo you asked about. there is no way one can say they would have died without that ammo. A regular .223 round fired from an AR-15 might penetrate light armor, but most likely won't. That's why they came up with the .223 Penetrator with the steel rod in it. Still only a light armor penetrating round though.

"but most likely won't"

"Moved the goal post on me there." you mentioned ar-15's. thought you might want to discuss them

It's awfully strange that an organization of men who purport to support law enforcement would unite to allow the sale of pistol ammunition made specifically to penetrate police body armor.

The 223 Penetrator wasn't made because the standard version was doing so well penetrating armor.

the moving of the goal post that I was clearly talking about was you asking how many cops had been killed by the ammo and then speculating on them not being needed when shown two that were.

I recall several pistol rounds that were heavily marketed and supported by the NRA which were touted as being ballistically difficult to match to the weapon that fired them and more damaging and more difficult for surgeons to remove when cop killer rounds were being pushed. Some of the morbidly grotesque magazine ads would indicate that the target market was e considered to be sadistic. The NRA went off the rails back then.
