Since I had so many people question the likelihood of taking a round out of a 22″ bolt gun as seen in this video http://youtu.be/oMYkEMhPsO8 I decided to re-do the test using a more common platform. This is a Sig M400 with a 16″ barrel and 1:7 twist. Ammo is Independence xm193, distance is 7 yards.
Keep in mind that Level III plates ARE NOT rated for 5.56, they are only rated for 7.62 NATO @ 2800 fps. Since the 5.56 round is much faster than that it can defeat the plate. There is nothing wrong with this armor, in fact it is affordable and effective on the majority of rifles and most all handguns and shotguns.
