OMG not another ADCOM post

I was pulling the bullets on the mutant ADCOM (AD 00 headstamp) to reload the bullet and powder in a primed case (waste not, want not). All had a full powder charge. One bullet was different though.


A tracer round. Bullet was cannelured, no paint on the tip, and has a mild steel jacket as a magnet will stick to the tip. The regular M855 type round has a steel penetrator but the magnet will only stick to the side. I had shot up all the 2000 date stuff. I checked the remaining 800 of the 2004 lot. No joy. I would be interested if anyone has found ADCOM tracers, or accidentally caused a forest fire.
