would you think it's as dangerous in an urban setting? What happens if one of those things hits a wall?

Then a fireman beats you with his axe. You DID notice the axes?

Default For what it's worth

I made the local PD very unhappy with this question about incendiary ammo. "If it burns so hot that it removes all traceable marks on the bullet and cauterizes the wound track, can any analysis be admissible in court?" I was told to remove myself from the break-room forthwith.

Ok Tracer is WAY different than incendiary ammo.

Tracers ammo has some phosphours on the azz end of the bullet. Not a big deal they are hell on dry grass and weeds though. I spent many a days on Fort Hood Chasing fires at 4mph on a D7 NOT FUN NOT FUN AT ALL.

Incendiary ammo is made to hit something and burn a hole in it or cause massive damage to soft targets inside the big heavy target. IE shooting at troop carriers.

I brought up the tracer rounds as a "easier to explain to a cop" idea.

"I was having trouble sighting it in." vs. "Ummmmmmmm...I was varmint hunting and wanted the possums to have a hot meal?"
