Science Experiment

How many hard drives with 5.56 NATO ammo penetrate? How does that compare to 7.62x54 Russian in a Mosin-Nagant? This is science.

First the 5.56...



Now the 7.62x54...



There you have it. The old Russian rifle is 3 hard drives deadlier.

Personally I am disappointed. When they loaded that green tip round I expected it to plow through all those hard drives, tunnel straight through the berm, and continue out over the horizon.

Shades of Asimov's "The Billiard Ball"!

I wonder how many hard drives an AP round of .30-06 would penetrate?

AP .30-06, I had the same question.

Don't show this to Hillary...

Too bad the Finns didn't work their magic (as far as I know) on the M38 along with the M91/30 -- that would make a sweet carbine (I had occasion to shoot an M38 a few times, and I liked it the way it was, for that matter).

libertyman: I dunno, Hillary might find it helpful for deleting pesky data permanently.

It would have been FAR better to line up a bunch of BATFE swill and try that test. Much more appropriate than destroying innocent hard drives.

I was wondering on 30-06/.308 myself

Sounds like a "Police Squad" episode where they shot through Barbara Walters interview tapes!!

Yeah, its three times deadlier, but dead is dead. You can't be three times more dead.
