I posted these pics and details of this round in another topic but didn’t get much of a response so I thought I would post it as a separate topic. Hopefully someone will know more about this rather unusual round.
This seems to be a Tracer round, what is unusual is the use of a [color=red]RED[/color] wax-like substance on the tip.
This isn’t an isolated example as " craigt " also has an example in his collection. Anyone able to shed some light on this round?
