    We can use fullbore tracer rounds on our Mod range (warcop) subject to the range warden's ok which deppends on how dry the ground is on the range is at the time(risk of fire ) You can also use it on private ranges if they are happy will let you or you can use them on land just to zero.

    Well you learn something new every day. I thought they were illegal, but having re-read the legislation, it is missiles that are designed to ignite on, or immediately before impact that are S5, so tracers aren't covered by that.

    Happy days!
