Trying to cut a Level III body armor plate in half with a select-fire AR (VIDEO)

The Wound Channel stacked the M193 deep then borrowed a post-86 dealer sample AR in an effort to see how much smash they could get on an unneeded plate.

Forced to stop the test due to taking blowback from the rapidly perforating plate (they were shooting from 10 yards), they managed to Swiss cheese the AR500 plate pretty good, but the AR is an ice pick, not a buzzsaw, so they didn’t get to cut it in half.

Still, this is the definition of “ballistic limit.”
