Ball and Tracer – Reduced Range Ammunition

The 0.50 caliber (12.7 mm) RRA Ball and Tracer ammunition provide the same ballistic characteristics of full range operational ammunition up to 800m. The tracer version is a ballistic match to the ball round.

The 0.50 caliber RRA projectile has a steel core with rearward fins, which is inserted into a gilding metal jacket to minimize barrel wear. It is designed to function in M2HB and QCB machine guns, and most common sniper rifles at extreme temperatures, without any auxiliary equipment or modifications.

The 0.50 caliber RRA has a maximum range of 3,500 m (3,827 yd.,) roughly 50% shorter than that of conventional service ammunition. This is a major advantage when training near urban areas, since users can fire the 0.50 caliber RRA on a 7.62 mm range, without changing the maximum distance of the safety template.
