Ammunition Reminder

We are currently in a Stage 1 Fire Ban.  It is especially important to remember that no tracer, incendiary, armor-piercing (black tip) or penetrator (green tip) ammunition is permitted on the ranges at CSEC as they constitute a fire hazard. This includes M855 surplus ammunition.

Armor-piercing and penetrator rounds have steel cores which cause sparks when they impact steel targets. Additionally, these rounds damage our steel targets, requiring their replacement.

Generally, if the projectile in the round attracts a magnet, it is not permitted. If you have any questions regarding the suitability of your ammunition, please ask a Range Safety Officer or inquire at the range office.
