Isn't the EA T6 (copper bullet) ammo at about the top of the heap for penetration through barriers. Even more so than the aluminum core rounds. Saw a YT video about those.

Yes it beats out everything including the SS190 while still doing a large amount of tissue damage, everything except one other round and this round is not anywhere in FNH's product line. This round is restricted though.

Heh. It was quickly fixed before anyone could notice. A little bit of Elmer's glue and a 'borrowed' chunk of popcorn from a different area of the ceiling for the room level, and I cut a square hunk of plastic from a blister-pack that some pliers came in, lifted the shingle up, and gorilla-glued it in place under the shingle. Attic-wise, the plywood splinters were pressed back in place, glued, and the rafter looks like just another nail hole from a previous roofing job.

No harm, no foul. Image
