Arent the military ones supposed to be hard on barrels. The only ones I've ever saw were the .22 tracers from Cabelas.

Chips, its about time you joined up over here :)

Here ya go. Down near the bottom is Talon tracers. Non corosive current Mil issue. I use them they will not hurt the barrel. Old WWII tracers were corosive and could hurt the barrel, the modern ones are fine. They may cause more build up so you need to clean the gun more often or shot placement will suffer in half the shots it normally would.
$35 per 100

I have a good pdf file about how to make your own tracers out of normal fmj bullets, I haven't tried it but it makes sense and the chemistry of the composition is sound and safe and the tool making part is detailed.
How can I put up a pdf for people to download ? (for someone who isn't that flash with computers :wink: ).
