This result is normal and significantly reduces the rounds velocity, if not completely defeating, opposed to through and through penetration.

Customer Reviews

Great side plates! Review by Jacob
I bough (2) 6x8 plates and put them to a 5.56 m855 and standard M193 test. I put about 30 rounds of m855 and around 20 m193 on the same plate at 25 meters and the plate only had one punch through somewhere in the last set of 20 m193 rounds! Very good quality and the Paxcon is really neat and will definitely protect you from fragmentation.

I recommend and I have the Warrior plate carrier with front (IV), back (IV), and both sides (III+) plus trauma pads for each plate. (Posted on 11/28/2016)
Review from mike christiansen Review by mike christiansen
The product is great I bought 2 10×12 and 2 6×6. The customer service is good everyone I talked to was polite and professional. They sent the wrong 6×6 plates but a little under 2 weeks after I first notified them I got the correct plates. I'm very happy with the plates I have now! (Posted on 12/11/2015)
Review from Jeff Review by Jeff
I have the 10X12 shooters cut Level III+ curved with the coating for my front and back plates and now I have these for my sides. I trust this vest with my life. A bit heavy BUT I know I'm protected if I were in the the plates. Top notch products from AR500!!!
