Not many, but those are not fullsize phonebooks.

I know a 22 rimfire round nose could probably penetrate one of those phone books.
(depends on the paper used.  Phone book paper varies a lot)

SO odds are that slug could get half way through.

I voted 8.

Damn, I thought this was a sex thread.    Disregarding poll.

I have a break barrel pellet gun that shoots .177 pellets almost clear through a THICK phonebook.  Of course, that's a smaller diameter projectile.  Point being that phone books aren't entirely all that tough.  I guessed 9.

If your pellet gun could completely pass through one of these phone books at 50 yards, I'd be pretty impressed!

Shit, ya got me.  I totally didn't do it from 50 yards.  Please forgive.   Like 5 yards.  I Fail.  

But I'll still be right about the 9 books with the slug.

Dry phone books.....

I'll say 3. I had some hot Ecuadorian 8mm that would go through 11 moderately sized phone books, clean through.
Link Posted: 7/5/2012 6:52:49 PM EDT

I'm thinking 5. But it will be stopped in the 5th. Giving it more than it probably has for energy. Maybe.
