    A big round ball bearing going ''300 meters per second''........
    Thats roughly what 900 feet per second? I dont think they slod me on it.
    If I was in the business that required wearing body armor, Id stick with whats been proven against pointier projectiles at MUCH higher velocitys........
    That ones right up there with your ''liquid reloading gel powder'' Roy.:D

    900 fps isn't really what I would consider in the league of current in use armor. Promising but, would like to see demo with real bullets and at 3x the fps.
