It isn't the Geneva convention that specifies only FMJs, it's an international treaty... One that the U.S. never agreed to.
There is no international law on that sort of thing.
The U.S. isn't using FMJ because we are required, not by a long shot, it's just the choice they have made. I imagine reliability and cost are determining factors.
