Just an observation. Doing a little shooting today, played with a .17hmr and a 7 mag. Had some 8"x8" 18ga scrap steel laying around was utilizing it as targets at about 60yds. .17 and the 7 mag was making nice round holes thru these targets. Just for the hell of it, I decided to take a shot with the XDSC. Really did not think I would even hit the target at that distance. As luck would have it, I hit dead center and the bullet just put a nice dent in the plate. No penetration what so ever.
