That stuff was specifically made to pull NATO Level 3 rifle armor plates through the soldier wearing it in strings and shards. Often x54 has lower velocity than NATO x51 so they figured out needed to have some hot steel core for troops in armor. Been told ISIS snipers like the steel core x54 as it allows them to make center mass shots knowing it will defeat our current armor plates.

Never understood why we use 7.62x51 NATO ball as our standard for ability of rifle plates instead of 7.62x54 steel core. Guess it's why a lot of troops run their own personally purchased plates.
