A bullet with 1/2 more energy cut through the copper plate like butter without even deforming it. Everything has a breaking point. You are correct that when your talking about the extreme forces that bullets put on things penetration is neither consistent nor linear. However when the penetration ability of a well known mild round goes halfway through something a high powered round will generally eat it for lunch. Take a bullet proof vest as an example. It will easily stop a 9mm round without much more than a bruise. Hit that same vest with a .308 and I wouldn't want to be the guy standing behind the guy with the vest, let alone the guy wearing it. Even if a 3 inch piece of that material was effective at stopping a rifle round 3 inches is still far too thick to be practical to be worn as armour. There are thinner and stronger materials even if they are heavier. The weight gain in the relatively small amount of material required for a helmet or chest protection is of less importance than bulk. I could see this having applications in armour for vehicles where bulk is of less concern than weight. I still think we are are talking about at the very least double thickness of that material to be effective for any improved body armour. I would imagine they will make it better are time goes on though. Smile | :)
