FML, i just saw a YT of lighter plates. Currenlty, my total for rear and front plates are about 16.4lbs. Then add in both sides total at 6lbs. Total 22.4lbs. Lvl4
Duritium plates (warrior poet endorsed). Front and rear total would be about 5.4lbs and total sides 1.8lbs. Total 7.2lbs. Lvl3+. Add 1lb for 3+ that can stop green tips.
Im on the fence of giving up lvl4s, but FBI stats from 2020 and prior show no LE encounter was with greens or like ammo nation wide. Even 308 are rare in the past 10 years prior to 2020. 2018 FBI stats, roughly (memory) 33 cops killed by handguns, 8 by rifles, 6 by shotguns, 5 undetermined. And these are the guys who interact daily with people with guns. (I didnt look up current stats)
But the question is what do u need them for? Ive seen a handful of times guys using greens at the range. Accidents do happen, so i would like at least protection from greens. AP 308 not needed, most likely, never seen those at the range. Personal xp, ive been flagged 2x buy guys gf's.
Ive always debated about lighter plates.
Est cost. $1400, but they have a 15 year warranty (expiration). So if u divide by the standard repacement of every 5 years or so, its worth the cost. XP plates are like milk. They can go past the XP date for a little and be fine.
