    Default Post Your Cool Tracer Pictures

    Went out last week while it was raining and shot some tracers out of my .22lr rifle. took a bunch of pictures and this is the only one that turned out. shooting at 100yrds looks like im shooting at 50yrds.



    this one it looks like the trace material came out of the back and made 2 streaks through the air. glad i caught it on camera

    That's cool. Where do you get .22 tracer ammo?

    What's the difference between tracer and incendiary ammo?

    tracers just glow so you can see where they are going. Incendiary rounds burn hot and are used to cause things to ignite.

    Hmm, but couldnt you ignite things from tracers? Also, are both legal in PA?

    A couple years ago I was shooting my SKS with a friend. I had bought a box of tracers just for fun. The guy I bought them from gave me a second box of what looked like tracers.

    They were factory milsurp rounds in a 10 round box. The headstamp markings were the same, the bullet and primer sealers was the same. The tip marking was the same.

    I fired the regular box of tracers and most worked just fine. A couple only lit up at the far end of the range.

    That second box though was odd. I wish I would have saved one of them. When I fired them, the muzzle report was off. It wasn't so much a bang as a whoomph. The gun cycled properly and everything but the muzzle report was wrong.

    I fired a couple more, they all made the same sound. I fired the last 3 from the hip after I noticed none of them lit up.

    I fired and the muzzleflash was insane. It looked like a basketball size fireball at the muzzle that tapered off about 8 feet in front of the gun and this was during the day.

    I never did find out what the hell kind of tracer they were supposed to be but they didn't hurt the gun at all.

    Not so. I have shot LP tanks with API, and they did not explode.

    They did perform well on other things, though.

    who?




    (i was the photographer and I'll try to get the video posted too)


    That was a fun day Dave. Don't forget to remind everyone that we waited for a rainy day and remained responsible with the tracers.

    There was another gentleman at the range that didn't leave until we were done shooting them. C'mon... who doesn't like tracers?

    Tracers are like little road flares going down range and they will start a fire easily and quickly.

    Be responsible so we can keep our sport alive.
