API is fun, but relatively expensive and only available in component form (AFAIK) for those of us who reload. Basically, when fired at a hard plate, it creates a HUGE white flash on impact. This is probably magnesium, but I'm not sure. Anyway, the component bullets are quite expensive, but are available from a few suppliers on line. This stuff won't make you any new friends at the range, due to the tracer like propensity to start fires.
Here's some:

That's the site I found too.

So what's the point of the incendiary stuff in a rifle bullet ?? (I understand the AP)

I don't get it. Am I missing something ?

Someone enlighten me

Hey cnatra !

Yeah, what osprey21 said. That gal's got to have a bad back, and it looks to me like the pressure in her implants is running low. Have you got something maybe in a wet t-shirt?
