Life’s Great Question: Is Aluminum Bulletproof?

Have you ever wondered if aluminum is bulletproof?

They first test out a .22 LR pistol and notice that the divot created was around 2mm. Those results were pretty interesting, they soon upped the ante to a 9mm hollow point bullet. They continued to increase the firepower all the way up to a .308 rifle.
