The Army is switching from lead bullets in many small caliber arms to "environmentally friendly" rounds in 2014, even through the lead bullets are tried and true while the stopping power of the "green" bullets is already being questioned.
The Daily Caller reports that the Army switched to a "green" round for its 5.56 mm ammo in 2010--these are the bullets used in an MP4 or an AR-15.
This ammo is referred to as an "Enhanced Performance Round" even though Fox News carried a report showing that Army testing shows the stopping power of the round is worse than expected "at less than 150 yards." Nevertheless, the Army is pressing on and making the 7.62 mm bullet "environmentally friendly" by 2014 as well.
The Army predicts "the use of green 5.56 mm and 7.62 mm ammunition could eliminate the purchase of 3,683 metric tons of lead between 2013 and 2018."

hahahahahahahaha

Just wait, the next green weenie coming down the pike will be hybrid vehicles and diesel particulate filters retrofitted one existing equipment.
The only time killing the enemy is green is when the buzzards eat the rotten corpses
Recycling rag boys with pig lard dipped lead projectiles,

now that is green energy.
