Ammo Incorporated Announcing ‘Streak’ Cold Tracer Rounds

Ammo Incorporated, a relatively new firm, is pleased to announce their next big product line, Streak Visual Ammunition. Also called “glow” or “cold tracer” ammo, Streak Visual Ammunition doesn’t burn and is safe to use indoors and out.

One of the biggest advantages of Streak ammo is that it can only be seen from near the shooter’s perspective. The glow layer is applied only to the rear of the projectile and will not give away the user’s location.

Because it’s a layer that provides the light, it can also be applied to all sorts of projectiles, from inexpensive ball ammo for training or modern expanding rounds for self-defense and law enforcement.

Right now Ammo Incorporated is offering Streak ammunition in three handgun loads, 9mm Luger, .40 S&W and .45 ACP. All three loads are available with red or green tracers. The company plans on expanding the product line to include hollow point loads in the future.

“We are beyond excited to bring Streak Visual Ammunition to the market,” said Fred Wagenhals, Ammo, Inc. CEO. Our acquisition of the exclusive rights for the Streak technology is a game changer for both our company as well as the shooting industry.”

“Once you shoot with Streak and you can actually see your projectile travel throughout its path, you will be bored by shooting normal ammunition,” Wagenhals added.

These tracers can be used anywhere regular ammo can be used making them excellent training tools and a fun addition to any shooter’s kit.

Several companies have tried to bring cold tracers to the market in recent years. Ammo Inc. is in a good position to succeed.

Price is always a factor when it comes to shooting supplies and Ammo Inc. isn’t charging high prices for these. The company is listing them for between $12 and $18 per box of 20. While that’s more than your average plinking ammo, it’s cheaper than many conventional tracers and it’s more flexible.

    What’s the big deal?? Glow Ammo has been around since 2011-2012. I just happen to have about 100 9mm loaded right now.

    Looks good, what’s the name of the band in the video?

  • Scotty Gunn December 23, 2017, 2:11 pm

    Genius. How is it in daylight, though as most of us don’t shoot in the dark.

  • Steve December 23, 2017, 12:50 pm

    Had to turn down the sound due to the screaming, headache inducing music.

    Funny they only show a Video from the Rear Position and not the Side or as the Enemy looking back at them….
    Makes me think its just a BS Gimmick

      Didn’t read the article, much?

      The “tracer” in the rear of the bullet is a phosphor. It doesn’t burn, it only “glows in the dark” like cheap phosphorescent night sites. The chemical is energized by the flash from the burning power, but because it isn’t burning off the back of the round, there is no “trace” behind it, as there is a trail of burning chemcial with a real tracer. Imaging a glow-in-the dark watch face traveling downrange while facing the shooter – only the shooter would see the watch face’s glow. The video only show’s the shooter’s perspective because that’s the only perspective from which the glow can be seen. A view from any other perspective could be a video of any other bullet, and wouldn’t prove a thing.

      Try reading the article. The trace layer is only on the rear face of the projectile and my understanding is that they do not burn as military tracers do. There is no cavity in the base of the slug that is filled with flammable material which you CAN see from all perspectives. These new ones can only be seen from the rear.

      For soldiers conducting actual firefights against actual enemies, that might be worth considering. These are intended for civilians, to shoot for fun. Unless you’re planning on a protracted firefight with an organized force (like the police, which would be a bad idea), I think this ammo’s inability to start a fire is the only real advantage over standard tracer ammo.

      That said, I’ll buy some just for the cool factor!

    Cool!
    Should be fun in a bump gun.

    • Glenn Thomas December 22, 2017, 10:53 am

      Cool!, Should be expensive in a bump gun!

        Well, there’s that…
