If you’ve never used tracer ammunition, it can be…informative. And, let’s face it, fun. The military uses it to walk in automatic fire, but the average Joe or Josephine can benefit (and be entertained) by watching the path of their shots, too.
But there’s one big problem. Conventional tracer ammo burns. It can and does cause brush and other items to catch fire when struck. As a result, there are very few outdoor venues where you can shoot tracer ammunition — and virtually no indoor ranges.
Now, however, Ammo Incorporated has rolled out their new line of STREAK Visual Ammunition, a non-burning, indoor-safe round that lets you follow your bullets’ path…without all the incendiary complications.
Here’s their press release:
Ammo Incorporated Releases STREAK Visual Ammunition
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Dec. 12, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — AMMO, Inc. (POWW), a technology leader and premier American ammunitions manufacturer, today announced its newest product offering, STREAK Visual Ammunition. AMMO, Inc. holds the exclusive worldwide rights for the incredible patented technology used to make the STREAK products. STREAK is one of the most technologically advanced ammunition to hit the market in decades.
“We are beyond excited to bring STREAK Visual Ammunition to the market. Our acquisition of the exclusive rights for the STREAK technology is a game changer for both our company as well as the shooting industry. Once you shoot with STREAK and you can actually see your projectile travel throughout its path, you will be bored by shooting normal ammunition”, said AMMO, Inc.’s CEO, Fred Wagenhals.
Unlike conventional tracers, STREAK rounds are NOT incendiary, they don’t use burning metals to generate light. Replacing fire-hazard burning metals is non-flammable phosphor material that utilizes the light emitted during the discharging of the round to make STREAK glow. STREAK does NOT generate heat, making STREAK rounds safe to use in environments where traditional tracers are prohibited and can be a serious fire hazard.
The results are game changing in many aspects for the consumer, law enforcement and military.
The glowing material used is applied only to the aft end of the projectile, making it only visible to the shooter and those within a 30-degree viewing window. Military and law enforcement appreciate that unlike conventional tracers STREAK’s glow is not visible to the target.
STREAK ammunition is currently available in 9mm, .40 S&W, and .45 ACP. The STREAK line will expand to include hollow points, a wider range of calibers and will be available in both red and yellow/green colors.
