    Body Armor Chart Protection Levels

    Neat! I like the way the chart is done.
    It displays the actual stopped bullets.
    Somebody sent it to me VIA E-mail a while back.
    I thought that I would share it.
    I do not know who originally designed the chart.

    Disclaimer: I have absolutely no idea how accurate this is.
    I am showing it for the graphic design of the chart only.
    Your body armor maker will have their own protection levels
    listed on their web page.

    Most useful pic QK - however - is it available in a higher res version? I suspect not but it'd be nice to get more detail.

    Nonetheless, a very interesting selection. Thx

    No...that's all I have.
    It's a jpeg & I uploaded it at 100%.
    I tried to print it myself (back when) & it sure does not print very well.
    Sorry.
