The article below was published in the September 1984 of SWAT magazine and it discusses the DoD test data for the SS109 cartridge that was in the process of being adopted at that time.

    I do remember a helluva lot of hype about the penetration capabilities of SS109 when I was still soldiering back in the mid 80s. Someone mentioned that it would tear the shit out of the aluminium armour on am M113 APC, and I wondered how they knew that. Like, who was shooting live ammo at APCs while on exercise?
