Recently purchased 1k rounds from a vendor listed on this site, which one I cannot remember. Box came, ammo was loose in a plastic bag... dates range from 00 - 04 on the brass that I've noticed.


When doing some evening fireing sunday, noticed a few tracer rounds in the bunch which alarms be because I'm shooting in the desert and I do not wish to start any brush fires. I know the chance may be unlikely, but I want to pick the tracers out of the bunch.


Any way to identify them? None of the rounds have painted tips.... but there are tracers in the batch some how.

Pull the bullets on the two that are suspect to make sure you judging correctly. Just a thaught.

Using the magnet method you should have been able to find numerous roughly a thousand steel core m855 rounds.... I tested it and it picks up m855 as well as the m856 tracer.... Sorry.

Best method is if the bullet has a green tip it is not tracer if it has a red or orage tip then it is likely tracer if it has no color tip then you will likely only find out if you pull bullets......

A fire extinguisher works best to put out those fires.
