    Holes in AR500: we tried everything

    A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government. George Washington

    There's no mystery to AR 500. For sporting rounds, 1/2" will stop everything up to 20 mm AP.
    2 important things about it are that it's HEAVY and expensive.
    Except for use as armor, I think it makes better sense to use 1/4" standard A36 plate. It's much lighter and cheaper, and it will take a long time before it's too shot up to use. After each session, attach a piece of plywood to the back with bungee cords so you don't scratch everything up.

    Level 4 (Plates and underlying BALCS CUT soft armor ) is way to go

    I saw 2 holes before the 500 BMG. Look closely.
