Is there any 5.7 tracer ammo available? I'd like to get about 600 rounds.

Not really. EA used to offer them but then the available 55gr tracer projectiles construction changed. We had been using milsurp plastic base caped bullets. Those ran out and also got so old, US Military changed over to 62gr, that only 1 out of 10 would ignite, There are current 55gr from the Philippines but these trcer have a copper disk base cap and are designed to NOT light before 100 yards and will not light from the pistol, So not much fun. You can pierce the base and the tracer compound will ignite as it leaves the barre, but the issue is the tracer compound binding materiel is poisonous as all hell.
