This may have been discussed before but which rounds (in SB) are known to contain DU?

Thanks

For the US M829 and variants of it. Not sure about 105mm ammo though, but M900 and M833(?) do have it. For the UK L26, L27, L28. For the Russians/Soviets BM29, BM32, BM46(?) and BK-21B, BM59(?) and BM28 for the 115mm. I'm sure there are others but these are the ones that I'm aware of or could find information on.

US DU ammo includes the 105mm M774 and 25mm M919 along with the type classified but non-issued 105mm M735A1 and 120mm XM827.

Wasn't XM827 WHA rod? Or at least one of variants tested?

True, multiple materials were tested with the XM827 before they settled on an stiffer, but slightly more brittle, version of staballoy (compared to that of the M833) for the future M829.
