It will fall into the realm of one of the banned "assault rifle characteristics" categories, be it a pistol grip or collapsible stock. They'll find every way they can to include the most minute technicality to ban as much as possible.

Yep. A lot of companies use specific wording that is open to interpretation to make claims without actually making claims. Lots of companies will submit an item to a special operations team or give it some operator walking by at SHOT show. The companies will then claim their product is used by special operations in order to increase sales on the commercial market, despite the fact that probably 98% of products given to these people get thrown in the garbage or traded at a FOB or base for a couple cans of Skoal or some porn.
When people call them out on it, they get away with it by claiming a technicality.
In this case, the company is using misleading wording, as Serbonze pointed out. They provide ammo that COULD be used by military or law enforcement, but isn't necessarily currently being used. We know what they're implying, but they can claim innocence by technicality.
