Fixed, thanks, Dan.

Here is the link to the video.

What do you guys think? Anyone else think they have a pistol round that will do that?

Works fine for me. Are you running it in Windows Media Player?

Can you check in on the Intros thread and let us know a little about you, as requested in the board rules?

Thanks mate.

Living in the country I fully expect my Larue 308 to go through just about any wall in my house and I'm actually relying on that if the situation warrants it. I know home better than any intruder and if he hides behind a wall in just the right places during a gun battle he's toast.

FWIW, I have repeated the test myself with the same armor and a 3.5" barrel .45ACP with 230 gr. Federal Hydrashoks and the LeMas rounds.

The results were identical. No penetration with the Hydrashoks, complete penetration with the LeMas, every time.

It truly is incredible bullet technology!

Are LeMas still manufacturing the AP rounds?

Do you have other videos on testing of this ammo?

Since of the rounds is much less, is the recoil reduced as well? (particularly felt)

Increased velocity might have an effect...but I haven't touched any physics since high school.
