In this quick video we test an armor plate against the stopping power of the 458 SOCOM. The 458 SOCOM is a big bore round with ballistics very similar to the 45-70 but designed to function in the AR-15 platform. The ammunition used in this test is 300 gr XP from Underwood Ammo, loaded with premium Lehigh Defense projectiles. You guys have probably seen the XP (better known as Extreme Penetrator) in action in the past 458 SOCOM test. This particular round is carrying almost as much energy downrange as a full power 7.62x51mm M80, lets see what happens.
