I never said that it did. All I said was that the .50 lost velocity at a rate less than that of the 20 mm projectile and that after some distance, it would be able to perforate more stuff/thicker plate than the blunter bullet! I also stated that the power to perforate things is proportional to velocity squared and 1/2 the mass. The heavier projectile will go through a thicker plate closer to the muzzle where the velocities are nearly the same, but at some point down range the fact that the large shot has to make a larger hole that requires more energy than it has will stop it from perforating said plate and the two rolls will be reversed! Which weapon would you rather be shot at with while riding in an APC; One with the big slow 20 MM shot at that range, or one with the ability to perforate the armor at that same range. Range here specified at which the WW-II 20 MM shot just fails to penetrate the armor and at which the .50 HCAP Shot is still going fast enough to go through the armor? RIGHT!
