    Bullets with some kind of phosporous substance in them.

    You stick in one for every ten ordinary ones or so in the mag.

    Lets you see where your bullets are going by leaving streaks o' light.

    Good for directing machine gun fire and similar.

    Also some soldiers put tracers in their magazines as say the 5th last bullet so they know if they are in a firefight its about to run out

    anyone have a video of tracer action? still can't visually picture it (i see it as a laser firing from a gun, but then again if it's every 4th or 5th bullet...)

    It's an actual round chemicaly treated to make it "glow".
    They use them every 4th or 5th round as a cost saving measure.

    cpt_azad: The most memorable use of tracers I recall is from 1991: The US night air raids over Baghdad during Operation Desert Storm, shot using night vision cameras in the city. The footage was shown on every news channel for months after. See if you can find that online.
    If not, you can rent the classic WW2 movie "The Battle of Britain".
    Whichever way you go, you'll see plenty of tracer fire.
