Project Eldest Son

In Nam...when I went to the Special Security Officer of the Battle Field Intelligence Command to claim the SIGINT items captured and also I trade PX cards and MPC for the captured weapons, the Sgt. who was in my language school told me me not to take any of American made ammo that had be re-captured. to use in the AK's. It seems that a certain percentage of the ammo was left to be captured and a percentage of that was stuffed with HE not "gun powder". It not only scored kills, but discouraged the enemy from using ammo captured.
Latter I found it was named "Project Eldest Son". I always remembered this tactic, worked often very well.
