VIDEO: Rifle Penetration Test

.....nor this.

One of my favorite Youtube channels is the Military Arms Channel. Here is a very interesting video comparing several rifle calibers with regards to penetration with what many would find surprising results:

“I take out a .308, 7.62×39, 5.45×39 and a 5.56mm rifle to see how each of these rounds fair in the woods against modestly sized trees. For those worried about the welfare of the trees, they’re getting cut down in the spring to make room for more ranges and will be used for fire wood. It’s rough being a tree, I know.”
