Exactly. Face, neck, shoulders are all still going to be exposed. Lying prone the plates do nothing at all. If you get tagged by a mere 5.45 its not something you can shrug off either; the round has much better wounding characteristics against soft flesh than 7.62. You might not die on the spot but you're down for the count. And something tells me that medevac might not be forthcoming in the case of an actual shooting war with a near peer opponent so you might as well be dead.GarryB wrote:

How ammo is made from scratch, and also an interesting test at the end...
