Can a regular hunting crossbow penetrate body armor?
The results certainly may surprise you.
Witness what happens when a crossbow takes on body armor.
An arrow tipped with a hunting broadhead sliced right through a soft body armor panel. How can that be? Well the tightly woven ballistic material is meant to catch bullets like a catcher's mitt. Arrow tips push through and cut the actually material thereby making soft body armor completely useless at stopping arrows.
