    Default Re: Barrier Penetration .45 ACP FMJ.

    Years ago Beaverkill Sports, a LGS in Nanuet, NY had a display of a Lexan (IIRC) clipboard that was made to double as a shield. It had 4 typical handgun bullets fired into it .46 ACP penetrated least and none penetrated completely but .22 LR penetrated the most. It seems frontal area was determining factor.

    Because “hollow point, dum-dum, cop-killer boolits” are illegal’ . Says so in the Geneva Convention ������������ smoking lounge. I heard.

    OP, try using wet, copies of the Yellow Pages. Pretty good simulation of a human torso, and easier to retrieve the projectile from than wood.
