Tracer, M1: Tracer for observing fire, signaling, target designation, and incendiary purposes. The M1 has a red tip. (Tracer ignites w/in the barrel)
Tracer, M2: Tracer for observing fire, signaling, target designation, and incendiary purposes. Has a short burn time. The M2 originally had a white tip, but then switched to a red tip like the M1. (Tracer ignites w/in the barrel)
Tracer, M2 alternate (1943–1945): A wartime economy variant of the tracer M2 that used a steel full metal jacket coated with gilding metal. It was ballistically matched to the ball M2 alternate. (Tracer ignites w/in the barrel)
Tracer, T10/M25: Improved tracer over M1/M2. Designed to be less intense in terms of brightness than either the M1 or M2 tracers. The M25 had an orange tip.
(In flight, the bullet exhibits a trace of full luminosity from a point not greater than 75 yards (69 m) from the muzzle of the weapon to a point not less than 900 yards (823 m) from the muzzle.)

Cartridge, Caliber 7.62mm, NATO, Tracer, M62 (United States): 142-grain (9.2 g) tracer cartridge, orange cartridge tip. (In general the M25 illumination info applies - In flight, the bullet exhibits a trace of full luminosity from a point not greater than 75 yards (69 m) from the muzzle of the weapon to a point not less than 900 yards (823 m) from the muzzle.)
Cartridge, Caliber 7.62mm, NATO, Tracer, M276 (United States): 7.6251mm NATO so-called "Dim Tracer" with reduced effect primarily for use with night vision devices, green cartridge tip with pink ring.
