Pretty much everything that hit the front of the jacket came out the back. That equates to 6 layers (counting the multi layer jacket as one layer). The bird shot loads rocked the target backwards, likely from the number of pellets hitting the jacket.
Granted that the human body is denser than the clothing, so I do not think that most of these loads would have come out the backside of a human target.
I feel very confident that the HydraShoks the wife uses in her SP101, the loads I have for the XD, and the #3 Buck and 00 Buck would do the job without too much trouble.

Cool idea, the only thing better would have been to make up some ballistic gelatin in the shape of a torso and see how far the different rounds actually penetrated. It would also be interesting to use different material jackets, Nylon, Jean, Leather, Canvas...etc. Liked seeing the different rounds from the .38 to the 00 buck. Thanks for the writeup.
