While shooting at about 75yrds I shot a Stainless steel box 1/16" thick it punched right thru with clean holes which made me think if an attacker was shot with this round 55gr FMJ wolf it would make a small whole is this how the 223 performs?

If people were made out of thin steel with air in between, yes, it would perform the same.

They are not.

I've shot chuck's with 40gr hp's and 53gr hp's in handloads, with bolt guns, but in all these years I never shot one with FMJ or softpoints. With the hollow points I always had an exit wound, a few times with a couple feet of intestines blown out. Most shots were under 200yds. I suppose a FMJ might not destroy as much tissue as the little 40gr. HP's loaded hot. Alot depends on the distance involved and how much muscle and bone the bullet hits.

I have to agree with Bill. What you saw would be the effect on the attacker if it was the Tinman from Oz.:rolleyes:
