A military small & medium caliber ammunition collection

Exhibit: Dim Tracers

Dim Tracers cartridges.

Dim tracers, sometimes called starlight tracers or infrared tracers, emit mostly infrared wavelengths and show little to no visible light when they burn.

Dim tracers help conceal a gunner's location by rendering the tracer stream invisible to the naked eye. Dim tracers also address the problem of night vision devices being overwhelmed by the brightness of traditional tracer rounds.
