    i have a few tracer rounds breaking up too due to the moisture in the element. I would not test it or use a torch although, the element will work! Does anyone know the content of the tracer element?

    i knew this, but were there in the past, like WW2 other compositions? some rumours talk about Phosphor in rounds etc, or was it in .303 ammo?

    For many years, from about 1915 to mid WW2 the British used Buckingham ammunition filled with phophorus which left a white smoke trail when fired. Although actually incendiary rounds, they were also called "smoke tracers" as opposed to the "flame tracers" discussed above.

    Thanks for the info tony. I found out the WW2 .50 tracers (US) has a red "light"and not white. so self igniting of these rounds are not te be aspected.
