Ballistic Armor: a Recommendation

When I was doing my Ballistic Armor series back in September, I mentioned that while I owned a set of 4401-SH-SC-L ceramic plates, I didn't know enough about them to feel good about recommending them to our readers. 

Earlier this month, Body Armor Outlet published a video of that very armor being shot by 30-06 M2 armor piercing rounds, 5.56mm M855 rounds, and  7.62x39 rounds.

As a refresher, here are the NIJ standards for this armor:

As you can see for yourself in this video, these armor plates held up in excess of NIJ standards. 


Needless to say, I am very pleased with this performance and now I feel comfortable recommending to you the Body Armor Outlet  4401SH Level IV 10x12 Plate, Standalone, Shooters Cut, Single CurveAs I write this there are 190 plates in stock and the cost is $120 per plate, so get them while you can. 

I hope you never need them.
