In high-threat situations body armor only protects critical areas of the body and has a limited ballistic rating
I am forwarding an email to you that I had sent out to some guys here a little bit ago describing our outing up at the County Gun Range …. I didn’t have all of the bullet information for all of the rounds so the info per round on your plate does not have all of the info shown but it does paint a pretty good picture. We hammered the hell out of it and it did stop .223 rounds from 15 yards out.
Anyway, this was well worth the effort as your plate really shined and impressed the hell out of us. We had a UPD SWAT guy with us that is a good buddy and he was “wowed” at what your plate stopped and how light weight it was.
I think we are going to be able to stir up quite a bit of interest with this plate of yours; looking forward to speaking with you tomorrow…
This is the level IIIA rated Daw Tech trauma plate that weighs less than a pound; we really hammered it today with a wide variety of rounds and it stopped most of them. This plate is not rated to stop rifle rounds although it did stop .223 rounds. Very impressive….
This is a photo of the rear of the plate below; the only rounds that went through were the 10mm round on the edge (it did stop a 10mm round in the middle of the plate) and the 308 round; the .223 Tactical Tru round only fragmented through at the top and that was likely due to how close it was to the edge of the plate.
