I hope so. A lot of my posts never get answered, but I really need this one. I gotta call the guy tonight, so I wanna tell him what he's getting.

MOST .303 Brit with a red ti is tracer, MOST with a black tip was an "observation" catridge- broke up in a puff of smoke on impact. Used in training to aid spotter of REAL long range shots, but there was also a black tipped Brock & Pomeroy cartridge from WAY back that was incendiary- baloon buster.

Thanks a lot!
The reds are tracers and the black is AP. I even found one drill round in the mix, but I'm keeping that one.

Oops, nope, it's a tracer in a drill round casing.
