Ballistic Vest Test

Legions Fate has performed a fairly exhaustive test against a PASGT ballistic vest. He even shot a couple of arrows at it.

Well worth reading and filing away for future reference. Plenty of good info, and lots of pictures.

  1. Nowhere near as bad as BOT, but I still cannot fathom why hollowpoints are used to test penetration characteristics, with conclusions then drawn on the platform, caliber, and munition.

    Good fun for giggles and grins and kudos to him for the effort.

  2. I would not have wasted any hollowpoints on such a test. I would have used FMJ or at least hard-cast lead all the way.
