|Depleted Uranium Projectile.|
When I got my first real depleted uranium projectile I was very excited. But frankly, it was a bit small, a bit thin. I felt inadequate. Very little spam arrives in your in box offering products designed to increase the size of your bullet, so I knew that some day I would have to get another one.
And here it is, my second genuine depleted uranium bullet. This one is several times heavier, about 1/2" in diameter, and with a much more interesting shape. (Though not nearly as interesting as some of the very large tank penetrators I lust after.) This one came from the same anonymous source, who was persuaded to part with it in exchange for most of a 1.7 kilogram slab of depleted uranium I have had for a while, but never listed on my site because I felt sure it was likely to be more valuable as a trading item than as a sample. And that it was. (For those who don't study the legalities of uranium ownership, you're allowed to have up to 15 pounds for educational or industrial use without a license, as long as it's not enriched.)
