    The Gevelot .22 tracer I have seen sold (in that box) went for around $30 per box. Not as visible as a military centerfire tracer.

    I had some Gevelot ammo, in 7.65 French Long. Shot it in a French Military, Model 1935 S pistol. It worked OK, but didn't seem to be as hotly loaded. As the ammo was supposed to be. This stuff was used in the French submachine guns. That dated to the 30's and 40's. And to be loaded similarly to the 30 Luger.

    Don't know if they (Gevelot), is still in business? Their open bolt .22 rifles, haven't been sold over here since the 80's. Might make your ammo more valuable?
