Not trying to Hi-Jack the thread but anm2_man got me thinking
Which of the two 50bmg rounds would penetrate better - Armor Piercing Incendiary or just Incendiary?
The reason i ask,I have a few of both rounds,'no APIT' I was wondering what good is (Incendiary) if it doesnt pierce armor/concrete/engine blocks/ect...
Is Incendiarys role made for starting fires or something like that
AP is the round for blowing holes in armor. Incendiary rounds by themselves will not penetrate armor. Yes Incendiary rounds will start fires. The reason APIT was developed was to allow the shooter to visually see the hits in the target and go thru it.
You are not hijacking the thread. He asked about ammo types and amounts. Have a wee bit of SS109 as I don't "respect" the armor piercing ability of it. I do rely upon '06, 308, 54R, 8mm, and 303s abilities to do a job on plating. Their AP will defeat most problems by penetrating 1-2" in steel. A bud has some other strange rds that "cut up" after penetrating. Someone mentioned a 50 round, A bud has an ample supply of API rds. Either the "30s" or "50s" will "turn cover into concealment"--- and that is the name of the game.
