There may be a good reason for him not going into any detail! Tear gas ammo?
However, on the off chance......any one know?

Tear Gas (CS or CN) is actually a powder so it would make the most sense if the cartridges are filled with the stuff and when set off; shoots the tear gas out the gun into a cloud of particles. I've never used them or seen them in use.

ok, I just looked at the link because I thought I knew what you were taking about, but those actually have bullets on them, the rounds I was thinking of look like blanks. After looking at the link, I would say that these are



until proven otherwise.

Here's some 7.62x51 tear gas ammo. Appears to have powder on the inside. I'm guessing upon impact, the powder scatters.

The Germans came up with the idea of this bullet in the mid-1930's. With the thin tank armor of the day it gave a rifleman the chance to get a single well placed bullet into a tank and have the jacket sear off. the "gas" would then escape into the confied area making the crew bail out to be shot as they do so. By 1940 the round was out of service.

The israelis probably had the same idea with their round and light armor.

This round has a commercial barnaul headstamp and a bullet tip color and looks to be the Iraeli bullet placed in the 7.62 X 39 case.

Besides the the fact that you have no way of knowing if it is someones garage paint job or the real bullet, i would doubt the round would have the velocity to pentrate enough light armor to be useful.

I guess I was wrong, my bad

I guess this stuff is a no go in inside shooting areas huh?

It would be a great way to find out if their ventilation system is working or not.
