THE USE OF ANY OF THE FOLLOWING AMMUNITION IS ABSOLUTELY NOT ALLOWED ON ANY OF THE RMSF RANGES DUE TO THE HIGH POTENTIAL FOR FIRE DANGER!
- ALL armor piercing, incendiary and tracer ammunition.
- 7.62mm NATO AP identified by black coloring in the bullet tip. M61 AP is the U.S. military designation of this ammunition used by NATO countries.
- 7.62mm NATO SLAP identified by projectile having a plastic sabot around a hard penetrator. The penetrator protrudes above the sabot and is similar in appearance to a Remington accelerator cartridge.
- 5.56mm (.223) SS109 and M855 (Penetrator) Ammunition identified by a green coating on the projectile tip.
- U.S. 30-06 M2 AP identified by a black coating on the projectile tip.
Banned NATO Projectile Identification
|Ammunition Type||NATO Color Coding on Bullet Tip|
|Tracer||Red or Orange|
|Armor Piercing Tracer||Red Tip atop Black Band|
|Incendiary||Light Blue or Silver|
|Incendiary Tracer||Red Tip atop Light Blue Band|
|Armor Piercing Incendiary||White|
|Armor Piercing Incendiary Tracer||Red Tip atop White Band|

A good rule of thumb for all RSOs to follow is that if the bullet is colored or has colored bands (not plastic tips), it is not to be used on any of the RMSF ranges.
