As noted, tracer ammunition refers to bullets that are manufactured with a small pyrotechnic charge in their base. When the cartridges are fired, the propellant ignites the charge, causing combustion that burns bright enough for the trajectory of the bullet to be followed by the naked eye. This makes these rounds very popular with target and competitive shooters because it allows them to make immediate aiming adjustments.
The bullets in a tracer cartridge are manufactured with a hollowed-out base. This is where the pyrotechnic material is located. Typically, this material consists of phosphorous or magnesium, both of which burn very brightly.

Tracer ammunition is not only used to make adjustments for aiming. It is often issued in the military and carries a range of different uses. One of the most popular uses in the military is to direct fire at a specific location or target. Because the bullets are visible by other soldiers, they know to direct there fire in the direction that the tracer rounds are being fired. This may also give away a soldier's position. Additionally, tracer rounds may sometimes be loaded in the bottom of a magazine to alert the shooter that the magazine is close to empty.
