You're screwed if hit by M80A1!

Well,

The new Army 7.62x51 AP ammo will penetrate just about any currently fielded body Armor. I haven't seen it yet penetrate Boron Carbide ESAPI plates yet.

Unless you have the latest in Body Armor you better have a Hospital nearby if hit with this stuff.

The Army going to a new 7.62x51 rifle for select unit will ensure that they can reach out and kill armored Soldiers.

Level 3 is pretty light, its not supposed to stop ap. I'd like to see it hit the heavier armor standardized with M2 AP.

As opposed to half screwed with anything else? Bring it, obviously a war needs to be fought.

YMMV

Already shot a level IV plate at 75 yards with M80A1 and plate failed. Same rating plate stops 30-06 Black Tip AP.
