The metal they use for non-DU KEP munitions is called Tungsten . It is not radioactive and is pretty heavy as far as metals go, but might cause leukemia. I figure that is probably your best bet since they like to use the densest materials possible when making tank shells - hence the switchover to depleted uranium.
