This 5.56x45mm M196 tracer ammo loaded on 10 round stripper clips is a special buy from a military contract overrun from the famed Lake City plant and is perfect for shooting with your 5.56x45mm chambered AR-15!

Tracer ammo is a great training tool for shooting in low light situations. Many serious shooters find that shooting with tracer ammo is a fun experience and a great training tool. You can actually watch the bullet's flight path through the air with your naked eye! M196 55 gr tracer ammo is actually preferred by many civilian shooters over the more commonly found M856 64 gr tracer load. The reason for this preference is that this projectile will stabilize in a broader range of barrels from 1:9 to 1:12 while the M856 projectile is properly stabilized with only a quick twisting 1:7 twist rate which is less common. If you're unsure, just check your AR-15's barrel and the twist rate will be displayed. If you see a 1:9 or 1:12, then you're good to go!

This ammo comes pre-loaded on 10 round stripper clips which make it super quick to load magazines with. Additionally, the stripper clips loaded in sleeves come in more portable bandoleers for easy toting back and forth to the range. Whether you're looking to do some serious low light training or target practice, Lake City's M196 5.56x45mm ammo is a great option!

Each round is brass-cased, boxer-primed, non-corrosive, and reloadable. It is both economical and precision manufactured in the United States by an established U.S. cartridge producer.

A: The tracer rounds can be fed off their clip into an internal magazine or any AR-15 style magazine. Some magazine loaders will accept the clips which will aid the loading process. Otherwise the rounds can be uninstalled manually from the clips and loaded into any magazine designed for the 5.56x45 round.

A: The ammo box as seen in the picture is included. Additionally, the rounds will come in the green bandoleers. This is a great transportation device if you are wanting to take some rounds to the range but not the entire can of 840 rounds.
