Default I want .223 tracers ;)

I want some tracers anyone know where I can get like 1000 at a descent price or 1500 or 2000? Yep I know they start fires and burn stuff, and glow and make funny lights, and give away my hiding place ! But I want some LOL Incase I need to look cool in the dark someday.

Plus it will be cool to shoot zombies with glow sticks

Is your rifle .223 or 5.56? I ask because you are unlikely to find .223 tracer anywhere, and 5.56 should not be fired out of a .223 chamber.

840 rds, $300. Fire extinguisher extra.

tracers are barrel melters. the glowy bits burn hot enough to melt steel. they frequently put nice big pits in machine gun barrels. the military doesnt care about that though because they got an everlasting supply of our money to buy new ones.

tracers arent legal in all states and your going to incur hazmat shipping fees they are corrosive so treat it like you just fired corrosive primed cases

True Jon and the day I will use and need the tracers I doubt I will care about any of that. They serve a great purpose

Tracers for shtf? About the only thing I would use tracers is to shoot propane tanks. A pit in your barrel would definitely suck if in a shtf situation. I would rather it happen when I can just buy a new one. I would look in to m855 for shtf but hey what do I know lol.
