Query came up under the reloading forum here regarding tracer bullets. I still see some .45 ACP stuff at gun shows loaded with tracers, and another correspondent said he still had some of the old Vector cartridges from Hornady.

Please keep in mind all tracer ammunition poses a fire hazard. And at this time of the year when things are getting dry they pose a distinct hazard. These should not be used "woods loafing" and should be used only under carefully controlled conditions only.

Please be careful!

If you shoot on an indoor range, the range may not be long enough fro the tracer element start to burn. Most .45 ACP tracer didn't start to burn until about thirty to fifty yards. I've seen some out to about seventy-five yards before becoming visible.
