I love doing and watching tests like this…
Effort to completely penetrate a 1/4″ thick piece of welding steel with the 62 gr NATO “green tip” round in 5.56 mm. This is NOT armor plating….far from it. Distance to target was 80 yards. Footage includes slow-motion of the hit.
M.D. Adds : This ammo is no more deadly, than standard .223 ammo, I’ve shot steel plates with regular FMJ .223 and to be honest I did not see any noticeable difference between the NATO round and standard 55 grain FMJ ammo.
The ATF ban of the 62 grain green tip ammo is just a step to ban all ammo that they classify as a body armor penetrating round.Read the whole entry... »
