PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT FROM M.A.I.L.
It is our position that chainmaille DOES NOT stop bullets! Any statements to the contrary are not endorsed by M.A.I.L.

Is this not implied?

Possibly... It's now explicit as well.

lol! I've been seeing the chainmaille does not stop bullets argument since before I knew what chainmaille was. You will always get doubters no matter how many announcements you put up. Still, I applaud you for the effort!

I would say 1/4" AR500 large steel scales over kevlar or wrapped in kevlar would do a pretty good job at stopping some pretty big bullets. At that point you could put the chainmail where ever you wanted.

When it comes to bullets I don't think titanium would stop much. I am thinking tungsten, it would be heavy as hell.

This is the thread that never dies.

Maybe we should dress it up in chainmail and shoot it with assorted projectile weapons. But that would be a waste of chainmail.

Or, you know, you could just accept that chainmail isn't bulletproof Smile
