Some of the methodology is interesting but it doesn't seem to have all the results. Looks more like the headers for a presentation.

Interesting that their starting point was whether rounds would penetrate a car windscreen. I would have been more concerned about the concrete wall at 200 - 500m.

That said, I would be confident of hitting the driver of an approaching car under 100m. I suspect that might have been the factor lacking in the events that prompted the trials.
