This XM62 tracer ammo, indicated by an orange tip,begins tracing at around 200 yards. Although considered military seconds, these rounds are very accurate and reliable. Military specifications are very stringent and if just a few rounds out of a huge batch fail specifications, then entire lot is sold to the commercial market as seconds. This fact presents an awesome deal to avid shooters getting to benefit from the huge production scale of our military which helps reduce the cost as well as getting to ride on the coat tails of our military's R&D expenditures.
Additionally, this brass is manufactured on mil-spec production lines which require evidence of the annealing process be left on the brass near the neck of the casing often referred to as the iris. This is the darker residue that is visually noticeable around the case neck. Both commercial and mil-spec brass undergoes this same annealing process which make the brass stronger and less brittle. The annealing process essentially runs the brass through a series of flames which heat the brass having the affect of re-strengthening it in its final shape. Commercial brass is then re-cleaned after it has been annealed to make it cosmetically more appealing for the commercial market. Military requirements on the other hand place a larger emphasis on the structural integrity of the casing so they require that evidence that the brass has been annealed remain on the brass.
