Generally speaking, ceramic armor plates can soak 8-12 medium caliber rounds from a rifle, and apparently are tested for two 7.62x54mmR hit equivalents, in the 30.06 AP round. Steel can soak... Uh, well, infinite medium caliber rounds. If they don\'t penetrate, the hit doesn\'t do much more than minor bruise. Speed is key for penetration.

Anyone knows about this and could clarify where that came from?
