Interesting morning after trying to chase squirrels with my son and I let a coyote slip by me without a shot. So I go back to the range and test the loads.
First picture is damage from 110 gr Vmax. It penetrated all the way thru 2 bottles of water and no further expending all the energy quickly. Fragmentation and violent explosive reaction!

The 2nd shot was a Nosler 110 Bonded Accu Tip, penetrated 3 water jugs. But also expands quickly and immediate energy release. I could not find any fragments.

The most interesting is the Barnes tipped TSX 110 gr. Wow! I had heard the bullets react like a larger caliber up, very true! I first lined up 4 jugs thinking its a tipped bullet and will stop like the others, WRONG! It passed all the way thru 4 full jugs! I went back and grabbed 5 more thinking I have this now, WRONG! The bullet past thru all 5 full lid on top sealed jugs! The last jug has a hole thru both sides.

I think I found some scrap metal for my AP rounds, but I don't know if I should use it.

The head is about 5" thick, and the actual body is hollow (maybe 1.5"-2" thick total)

I don't know if it is hardened steel, and I don't know if a AP round could make it through it.

Do you think a 165 gr AP bullet traveling at 3000+ FPS can make it through it, or would it just get stuck halfway through?

I would not shoot an AP round at that ... and no, it will not penetrate 5" of steel. Look for some 1" plate and maybe stack 2 one in front of the other with a 1" gap between.

I was pretty sure the round wouldn't make it through the head, but wasn't sure about the thinner, hollow body.

I'll see if I can find some 1" plate.

My brother shot at 3 Poweraid bottles with his AR, SS109 62 gr fmj. The round penetrated 2 bottles and barely damaged the 3rd bottle.

Here is the YouTube links of the 110 gr test. It's fun to stop the video at the moment of impact !
