Penetration tech: BAE Systems' new ammo for Our Boys and Girls

Not quite

It's about lead in ground water. Such poisoned groundwater can be injurious to animals and young children.

Steel is a poor choice both as a penetrant and non-pollutant. The best choice used by U.S. forces is tungsten.

You can eat tungsten all day without the slightest harm except a feeling of sluggishness.
