50 CAL VS COPPER PLATES – how strong is copper?

Edwin Sarkissian checks to see how a few sheets of copper hold up against 647-grains of armor-piercing incendiary tracer.

The 1-inch copper sheets have a beautiful red-orange hue to their surface, but after a red/silver-tipped Freedom Munitions M20 APIT fired from a Serbu BFG-50A, they will probably never be pretty, again.

He follows up with a more gentlemanly black-tipped M2 round, with much different results on the plate.
