U-238 (depleted uranium) is just fine to handle. It is dangerous in the sense that it is a heavy metal and is a TOXIC substance. If you had enough of it enter your blood stream or resperatory system then you might want to seek medical help ASAP! But other then that it's just metal. It has the same hazards as lead nothing more. U-235 however is unstable and highly radioactive. The reason U-238 is used for armor and armor peircing amunition is because it's heavier aand denser than lead.
