At 100yds XM193 makes nice holes in mild steel. This is from a couple years ago, you can see the lead splatter from 600yds, and the holes are from 100yds. At shorter ranges, the steel doesn't hardly move when hit.

That wasn't even a full day of shooting either.

We need to have another one of those get togethers. . .

Well, at "The Pit", a local unsupervised shooting hole, there was a big plate, and XM193 wasn't going through it all the time, but the majority of the time at 50 yards, the rest of the time it'd make a big dent and nearly go through, with a big bulge at the other side, but no penetration. I think it may have been 3/8" or something.

This was a penetration test I ran some years back with a .30 cal. AP bullet pulled from a .30-06 round, and reloaded in my .300 Weatherby Magnum. You can see the recovered bullet has shed the copper jacket, but the Tungsten Carbide core is intact and sharp as a needle! This was after penetrating almost 1 1/2" of 4140 Pre Hardened Tool Steel! The shallow craters were made by XM 193 Ball. The small dimples that are barely visible were made by full house .44 Magnum Jacketed Soft Point rounds fired from a Ruger Super Blackhawk. Bill T.

You are aware these penetration issue questions are covered in the Ammo-Faq, tacked to the top of the Ammunition forum?

+1

I saw a special on TV that was at a company that up armored Hummers for the Mil. 1/4" armor plate stopped AK rounds at close range (~15 yards) with nothing but bullet spatters. No obvious cratering of the steel.

The glass also stopped the rounds, but was heavily damaged.

Just a heads up. Its illegal to put the 30-06 AP bullets onto anything other than a 30-06. the black tip AP ammo is only legal on a 30-06, and 50BMG. I know sounds rediculous, but true.
