    Wow! You can read Chinese. I wrapped a lot of these collectable ctgs in plastic to protect them. Tomorrow I'll take one out and see if the bullet tip is painted.

    I took a peep inside. Headstamp is the same as yours. The bullets are not painted on the tips. Your ctgs appear to have a red primer sealant. I do not see that on mine. (either clear or not done)

    When I get some more time, I'll radiograph one and see if it is a tracer.

    Hi Copdoc,the reference book I have says they did not use color coding on US supplied ammo.If you know someone who can translate it ask them to do so.I was using a translated Japanese label and could be wrong.
