Yes. Winchester itself is the one that restricts sale to LEO only. Company rule, not a law.

Some overzealous attorney could possibly try to twist why you were using ammunition that the manufacturer specified as LE-only. Of course an appropriate answer would be that you chose it for the very reason that LEO throughout the country use it and you knew you would be getting a quality product without having to simply guess at what you would be getting, and that the ammo is often available from several dealers who sell to civilians.

Federal HST and Speer Gold Dot are also excellent rounds.
