I was pretty bored today so i decided to go out and target shoot for a few hours. A while back i bought a Belgium army helmet with kevlar lining from a surplus store. I decided i would see how well it stood up to small arms fire. I thought i would share the results here, I admit this was not a controlled scientific test, but i think the pictures are kinda cool and wanted to share them. I shot the helmet with a SAR1 AK47 -7.62x39 Then a Mosin nagant -7.62x54r Both of the rifle shots where at 200yrds and completly penertrated the steel helmet and kevlar lining. After that i brought the helmet downrange to 75yrds and fired at it with guns chambered in .380, 9MM, .40s&w and .45 Although the pistol caliber guns put huge dents into the helmet, non of them actually penertrated the steel. As i say im not trying to prove anything with this post. I just thought it would be cool to show the pictures P.s I'am happy that i was not wearing the helmet! Any other forum members got pictures of the results of shooting at helmets/body armor?
