First off really enjoy all the videos y'all post. While watching lawman's video of kill compilation something popped in my head.

Has anyone tried using thermal with tracer rounds? Heck it's probably illegal to hunt with tracers and I know a potential fire hazard during drier times, but was curious if anyone has tried and if so what the outcome was threw thermal.

Just thinking outloud

I did it once, and was thoroughly disappointed in that I couldn't make a single one out on the video. I think they travel too fast to catch anything on the thermal. They are certainly hot enough, but just don't last long enough.

Someone may have different experiences.

Yea and he was shooting almost 200 yards so that gives you a ways to see them.
