Ok I got ahold of some old "sefariland" and "point blank" body armor. These vests are about 12 years old. I shot one of the vests with a glock 22 .40 and a Springfield 1911 .45 pistol, and then used a metal sheet backed with two armor inserts to test .308 and .223 rifle rounds. There is also one shot by a 12ga slug. You should be able to see what is going on by the pictures.

-The next is what happened to the .45 JHP+P that was shot into the vest above.

-Here is the result of the metal and two layers

-Here is what a 12ga slug does...no penetration

Now a level 3a vest shot by a .44 Mag

Got few a few layers and stopped.
Here are the slugs

Here the the end result of the rounds.
I again shot the metal plate with 9mm, .40 and the .45+p and the .45 was the only one to penitrate. AND IT WAS A HOLLOW POINT!

Id say that pretty much explains why the US military are dumping the 9mm and going back to old reliable :-D :-D

Thanks for the interesting test. I think the mushroomed bullets would make cool buttons.

No, he's just one of them crazy guys with a huge wallet who loves to buy things he most likely will never use. For awhile he had this cool minigun that shot BBs. He's got a few demilled belt fed machine guns. Also has some 30mm dummy rounds that he uses as paper weights. :p
