Streak visual ammo

Post by chopperjim » Sat Jun 27, 2020 4:11 am

Hey guys, not sure if this has been brought up as i didn't see it when i searched. But has anyone tried out the 147gr streak visual ammo? It was pretty much the only 9mm ammo my local gunshop had so i picked up 200 rounds of it. This stuff any good? And how does it compare to a nato round as im going to attempt to break the gun in with it. Thanks! -Jim

it is called tracer rounds and it won't hurt the gun. As to whether it will function properly, i do not know.

I watched a video on it and it has to be pretty dark for you to see the phosphorescence. In the video basically it was so dark that the shooter couldn't see his non-night sights.

Im more curious if it has the same power as a nato round just for break in purposes. Im never going to shoot at night, was all they had in stock so i grabbed it.

never messed with pistol tracers, have some in 5.56, 7.62 NATO, 7.62x54r, and 7.62x39. Might want to becareful is the range is dry and grassy.

The steak stuff doesn't burn. There's basically a glow material on the back of the bullet that is charged by the burning of the powder.

To the OP, does the ammo list a velocity? I'm guessing fairly slow. Still, just go out and shoot. The gun will break in.

Oh I never heard of streak ammo before and just assumed it was regular military style tracers.
