Steel, tungsten or DU?

How to determine if a armor penetrator is in steel, tungsten or depleted uranium (appearance, magnetic property, …) ?

Thanks for your suggestions

If you’re an IAA member I believe there were articles in recent issues of the JOURNAL that discussed these.

Issues 434, 400, 419, 415, 414.
