Body armor rated at 3+ is supposed to protect you against most anything, but let’s find out how it stands up to a 458 Socom.

Body armor is a beautiful thing. Seeing how it manages to stop or at least deflect the rounds heading towards a potential target is simply amazing. Of course for every grade of body armor there is going to be a round that’s just a little too big or powerful for it and will bust right through. Today we get to find out just how quickly a 458 Socom round will render a plate of 3+ body armor usless on the body of it’s wearer thanks to Demolition Ranch.

As powerful a round as the 458 Socom is, we certainly didn’t expect it to last quite that long. Of course if that piece was your only piece of body armor, it’s highly unlikely that you are going to get hit by that many rounds directly in the armor. But it’s good to know that if that’s what it came down to you would have a decent amount of time before it finally gives way.
