Where did you get 7.62x39 tracer?

I picked some up at a gun/army surplus store.

Are those powerlines I see in those pics?

Of course not. They went powerless on the previous shot.

Hmmm....I would have expected more of an arc at that range.

Cool pics

ETA. What is the range???

I realize that 7.62x39 is .311 diameter and american 7.62 is .308 in diameter but if you reloaded pulled american 7.62 tracer in 7.62x39, would it light?

I'm thinking some pulled/reloaded 7.62x39 would be much cheaper.

they are fun to watch at the range- put 50 guys in a row with 30 rounds of tracers each and watch the show! Anybody who has been to basic/infanty training (or war) has seen this...just watch out for the fires

And the reason that the rest of the picture looks so bad is because I wasn't using a tripod. I set the camera to hold the shutter open but when you do that it's hard to keep it still. So the background looks shaky. Or I could just say I took it during an earthquake. YEAH, that's it, it was an earthquake.
