Ballistic Vest Live Fire Test

I got this from Squeeky, who got it from Sebastian:

In this post I show an illustrated test of a PASGT ballistic vest against many different threats. There are several of these tests on the web but none that I have come across have brought to bear a full range of cartridges. I decided to step up and set things straight.
He tries everything from a .22 magnum to a .300 Win Mag to a 12ga. sabot slug. It's a good read, not only for an insight into the properties of a vest, but the results of the different rounds.

A .44 Mag won't penetrate, but a .22 Mag will. Whoda thunk it?
