And your source is fudging things. The solicitation for the HP bullets does not indicate they are to be used for training only. It doesn't specify any particular use (why would a RFQ specify a use? that would be silly).

Here's the actual solicitation:

It's an RFQ, and hasn't even been filled. It's the only evidence you've brought they they've tried or have actually bought HP rounds.

So, so far they've bought 0 HP rounds based on what you've shown me. And even if they did, they have legit uses for it (no doubt the secrecy service and other organizations under the DHS don't mess around with FMJ for duty ammo) so it's no surprise they they buy it.

In any event, you didn't answer the question: how much ammo does the DHS need per year?
