M996 5.56mm Dim Tracer


#1

Does anyone know what the tracer compostion is in the M996 5.56mm Dim Tracer with a purple tip, headstamp \ CG 06 /? Its more brown in color than the M276 7.62mm dim tracer. I don’t trust what little info that is out there on the internet about the M996. Thanks wolfgang

It is an infared tracer, and Stamp CG is Swedish from
NAMMO Vanäsverken

I don’t have an answer to your question but look here to see a pdf on CBC’s version of this cartridge: intl.cbc.com.br/upload/folders/m … cer_en.pdf

This may help even though it focuses on the 7.62x51mm cartridge
