    I was at a gun show recently and a guy I haven't seen before, I think he was a private seller, was selling this wire. It comes with a drill bit and a ziploc bag. Lol. He said you drill a hole in the back of the bullet .308 or larger, cut a piece of the wire off, place the wire inside the hole, put a little super glue on it, and tada tracer round. I should have bought it, because he was only selling it for ten dollars, but anyways has anyone ever heard of anything like this. I can't find anything on the web about it.

    Sounds like he was trying to sell you some sparklers

    Yep. Now, just for a minute, ponder the potential accuracy of those if you drill the hole just a LEEETLE bit off center. :eek:

    Hmm lets say its my trusty 06 with 150 gr. bullet and a 1 in 12" twist moving 2900 fps theoretically its rotating 2900 rps or 174000 rpm that LEEETLE bit off center would cause one heck of a wobble :eek:
