Picatinny Arsenal munitions experts have developed a process to recycle a family of old artillery shells to create less expensive, more realistic and safer training rounds for Soldiers, giving new meaning to the slogan "renew, reuse, recycle." Pictured here, U.S. and Philippine Marines load M107 high explosive rounds into an M777A2 howitzer during an artillery shoot at Fort Magsaysay, Philippines, Oct. 25. The M1122 will replace the 155mm M804A1 Practice Projectile and M107 HE Projectile, which are more expensive, for training.
