Yes it still exists, but is on the banned list because it can be fired in .308 pistols you know one of those cop killer bullets. That means it is OK to possess but not to buy/sell/make. The US M61 was not used very much and is very hard to find, the M993 is new, much better performing and even harder to find. I would think the most common would be the Israeli or you can look for 30-06 bullets to reload but again this is against the law. What makes it AP is it has a penetrator made out of some hardened material steel or something harder. The WWII 30-06 used tungsten carbide. You have to be careful as there is a lot of ammo with steel jackets or mild steel inserts that are not classed as AP but attract a magnet.
