This is just some stuff I have been adding to as the years go by that I don't need anymore. There are some Winchester, PMC, Remington, Lake City, other manufacturers and a few with orange tips in the mix.

$125 FTF in the San Bernardino area or FTF in the evening hours in Monterey next week starting the 3rd.

M856: 61gr Tracer, long range, orange-painted tip.

This cartridge uses the FN-designed L-110, 63.7 grain tracer bullet, which has no steel penetrator. (Note that while FM 23-14 lists this bullet weight for the M856, IMI lists the weight of the L-110 tracer bullet which tops the M856 round as 61.7 grains. At least one AR15.com member reports 60.8-61.3 weights for a variety of M856 rounds that were pulled). The long projectile requires a barrel with a 1:8 or faster rifling twist.

BEST GET RID OF THEM - TAKE NO CHANCES UNLESS YOU ARE SURE THEY ARE NOT TRACERS.

Are you saying there is a felony violation occuring?

Could just be they are painted orange tip because orange was a very nice color (FAD) for the very fashion conscious soldier to have in 2004.:D

Actually looked it up... I have seen/shot a few orange tip 7.62 rounds on quite a few linked belts so decided to take a look and see what it meant in 5.56.

I am not that much of a mil geek to quote it off the top of my head... next time I will just let it pass in trade and be quiet. No skin off my ***.
