5.56 Punches Through Level III Body Armor


This is a 55gr XM193 5.56 round fired from a 22″ barrel at a level III body armor plate from 7 yards. The bullets were traveling at 3,236  feet per second from this long barrel. The Wound Channel believes that the 22″ barrel and resulting increased velocities propelled the round to penetrate the body armor and ballistics gel. I was surprised to see how the 5.56 green tip performed under the same conditions!
