.556mm .223 Cal, M196 Tracer. USGI LC, $35 per box of 20
This Federal Cartridge is genuine Lake City Ammunition. This tracer ammunition is loaded to military specification and is perfect for providing the shooter with immediate feedback through trajectory visualization by allowing the bullet path to be seen. Tracer ammunition is a great choice for banging away at steel targets, casual plinking and high-volume blasting sessions. The military uses tracer ammunition as an efficient tool for signaling. They are effective for use as pre-arranged signals between units and individuals; they also can be used to designate targets. As tracers burn very bright and very hot they may catch surrounding vegetation on fire, so they should only be used where there is a limited chance of the shooter starting a fire. This ammunition is loaded with a delayed ignition tracer meaning it will not ignite for 50-100 yards. This means the tracer is not burning up barrels prematurely causing damage to expensive firearms. This ammunition is new production, non-corrosive, in boxer-primed, reloadable Lake City brass cases.
