9x19mm Tracer box


#1

The name of the company is under the blacked out area on the bottom of the label. it reads:
ACURA-SEE AMMUNITION MONROE, WI, 53566, USA.

The ammunition has assorted, mostly US military cases and the bullets have translucent dark red tips.

Does anyone know anything about this company?

Cheers,
Lew

Hi Lew,

This was an early tracer ammunition brand used by Strommen and Trickel, who later formed Strommen-Trickel Industries, Inc. (same address). They also used a similar sounding brand named “Acra-See”.

Not 9mm related but, .308 Strommen Trickle tracers that someone gave me a long time ago. Found the tracer compound to be hydromorphic and you are probably looking at more glue than compound. A small piece of white paper are glued to the bottom of the tracer holding the compound in. (The paper is wrong in photo, but that’s what came with the projectiles. Dk blue and Red tip.
