The US Army has to go on the “Wall of Shame” for this. GREENWASHING at its finest. New GREEN ammo!
The new M855A1 round is sometimes referred to as “green ammo.” Yes the new rifle cartridge from the US army is being marketed as green!!!!!
“The Enhanced Performance Round contains an environmentally-friendly projectile that eliminates up to 2,000 tons of lead from the manufacturing process each year in direct support of Army commitment to environmental stewardship.”
Environmental stewardship! What environmental stewardship. The US Army is the single biggest Green house gas emitter in the US. At least now we have green bullets. As one commenter put it.
“Lead free bullets...that kill people .....they are worried about the lead !!! give me a break !”
I wonder when the US army may look at phasing out the depleted Uranium rounds it uses.
To add insult to injury: Apparently “The M855A1 Enhanced Performance Round is the first environmentally-friendly bullet resulting from a larger “greening” effort across the Army’s Small Caliber Ammunition programs. Other greening efforts include 5.56mm tracer, 7.62mm ball and green primers.”
I am in awe!!!!
Welcome to my “Wall of Shame”.
