Been shoping for range ammo and came across this and was wondering why someone would want this.

I've shot quite a few of the old (now discontinued) Hornady Vector tracers through my various Glocks on outdoor ranges; it's pretty cool to see that little illuminated line zip out to a long-distance target.

Here's what the 9mm Vector looks like:

I believe the .40 Vector came in a long/slim 20 round box (two rows of ten rounds), instead of the 25-shot square box used for the 9mms.

Guess it would be interesting but no outdoor ranges near me.

It's been raining here for two days, so I figured it would be safe to shoot a few to get a video clip.
The overcast skies were a plus, making it easier to see the trace.
