Blowing the Crap Out of DKX Armor Plates: Fail?

Nutnfancy tests the Phalanx Defense Systems DKX M3 Level III hard plates:

“Can the DKX take six hits at 20 yards from a .308? This lightweight armor is cutting edge, highly recommended in TNP. However if it fails to stop rounds who cares? We put it to the test in this data point and use up four DKX plates in the process. This is a non scientific approach but you should find interest on how this Dyneema performs. The TNP barricade takes a pounding as .308, .223, 9mm, .45 ACP, and .357 are launched in real time. Watch the video for the close up action and the gratifying results.”
