I wanna see the effects of the 5.56's impact on the human body. videos, gif, pics whatever. Is it a man stopper or just a meme?
dings up some 1" thick aluminum real good.
green tip will pass through, but only the tiny penetrator. 55gr fmj was stopped at 100 yards. The ball peen hammer marks are from my 10.5" 9mm AR @ 50 and 100... and there are a few actual ball peen hammer marks from knocking this drop out of the plate.
Because NATO issues M855 green tip penetrators as the standard round. When the most common 5.56 round in circulation will chew through aluminum, it doesn't make any sense to use aluminum armor.
Saw the video a while back of the insurgent or whatever in an iraq street aiming an rpg who then starts getting shot with what apparently was m249. One went through his torso and come out diagonally and hit the road, another hit his arm which buckled then the last went through his head
>I really, REALLY wish this stupid myth would die.
Well hit it with something that has some stoppin POWAH then.
>Designed to wound, not kill.
That's the real meme
5.56 is front-heavy, and prone to tumbling upon entering flesh, creating a larger wound cavity ---->more non-survivable wounds than larger ball ammo
855 made i over half way through this inch thick hunk of mild steel.
No fucking way aluminum will protect you
Dat explosion! dat gel farting smokes three times!
