Why is the federal government stockpiling hollow point bullets?

Why is the federal government stockpiling hollow point bullets?
Do they know something that we don't know and if so what is it?

Is there a foreign war on the horizon? Is the federal government planning on putting down some type of domestic civil and social unrest with the use of a type of deadly force not allowed in war?

Or, do we take the explanation given that these deadly and extremely expensive bullets that have been outlawed by the Geneva Convention were purchased as "standard issue" for "training purposes"?

From an article at Examiner:

"...Hollow point bullets are so lethal that the Geneva Convention does not allow their use on the battle field in time of war. Hollow point bullets don’t just stop or hurt people, they penetrate the body, spread out, fragment and cause maximum damage to the body’s organs. Death often follows.

In addition, Curry noted that during the Iraq War the U.S. military used 70 million rounds of ammunition per year. Compare that with the 750 million rounds of hollow point bullets that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) ordered in March. And then it further ordered another 750 million rounds of various types of ammunition, some of which can penetrate walls. Curry declared,

This is enough ammunition to empty five rounds into the body of every living American citizen. Is this something we and the Congress should be concerned about? What’s the plan that requires so many dead Americans, even during times of civil unrest? Has Congress and the Administration vetted the plan in public..."
