    Meh - men won't want to use them. Size matters to them. ;)

    "Green" ammo? That's the dumbest sh*t I ever heard! Guns are designed to kill people not be "eco-friendly". Unless it shoots better than the existing 5.56 ammo, I see no need for it.

    I thought the 155 mm shell was "green." It vaporizes the enemy into little bite size bits for Bambi and the other forest animals to feast on.

    Personally, I don't care what color they paint them.

    Interesting post. Wonder if anyone has information on cost and performance differences. I agree that is what matters. If the cost and performancd are the same, may as well use the modern more friendly ammo.

    Friendly ammo.

    Anyone got a link to a website that has more than a press release about the test? Perhaps a firearms review?
