For future reference, Red bullets are AP shells, Orange are HE shells. It really depends on the gun/situation. But for the most part use AP.

Red-AP= Amor Piercing
Orange-HE= High Explosive
( Black-APCR= Amor Piercing Composite Rigid= Only on USA tanks? )

The deal is, if you have a long barreled pipe, its mostly better to use AP, it has a high penetration, and often low damage, the other hand, if you meet a heavy which you know you cant penetrate, you switch to HE, that will (almost) always deal atleas 1% damage to the heavy.
