Best Answer

Depleted uranium is not so dangerous in metallic form. The external irradiation is minimal - because the alpha radiation is retained by some centimeters of air. The gamma radiation has a small energy (max. 185 keV) and a simple shield is sufficient.

Of course, for detailed data measurements of dose are necessary.
