Default Garand tracer ammo

I would like to buy a can (+/-) of tracer ammo for the Garand. I will post as a WTB, but thought I would let some feedback here. Does the tracer rounds damage the barrel? Are there any modifications required to shoot the tracers?

AFAIK, standard USGI tracer ammunition does not in any way do any damage at all to any rifle including the M-1 Garand. The trace compound does not light inside the bore of the rifle but only after the bullet has exited the muzzle. There are no modifications required to fire tracer ammunition in the M-1 Garand. Sincerely. bruce.
