    I'd suggest starting with less likely then work up, a little foreplay.....

    But you also compromise the plate for the good shot if you're worried about highest performance. I would start with the FMJ and work back from there.

    That is what I was thinking due to this being similar to a ceramic plate. The more rounds it takes the higher the likelihood of a failure. So start off with the round that has the greatest chance of a complete pass through.


    It looks like I will be testing this at a friends range. He is ex military and ex police so Iím sure he will get a kick out of this, and the range I normally visit frowns on anything like this.
    Prepare for the worst, hope for the best
