Saw a new ytube clip from buffman where a 338 norma or lapua was shot at 200m into level 4 armour.
Despite a tungsten core, it didn't penetrat and had to be bought back to 100m to suceed
I think this really shows that speed is key, the round only atrikes at 2500fps. Even a .50 is beig stopped by some of these plates
Compare it with the vid of someone defeatig plate with a pure- lead bullet at 5000fps.
This sugests that even a tungsten NGSW would struggle like the lapua
...with the only solution being a mach.5 speed level bullet.
Option one is a 22 WSSM with 30grain VLD.
option 2 is to try and somehow launch a .17 at 762nato energies.
