Body Armor, Back Face Deformation, and Trauma Pads. What does it all mean?

We test Level III Body Armor for (BFD) from the most common calibers. 5.56x45, and 7.62x51 (.308 Win) at just 5 yards. Utilizing ballistics clay we're able to determine the amount of back face deformation, or lack their-of, from each round striking the body armor.
