Ballistic Test Yugoslavian M59/85 Army Helmet

Ballistic Test Yugoslavian M59/85 Army Helmet



everyone we're back with another ballistic test today I've got the Yugoslavian m59 85 up there these are the ones that I can't sell because the liners are just shot but uh it's really cheap and affordable and just something to do today another Eastern Bloc helmet millimeter out of my AA meeting Telegraph the 9 mil barrel just proof again there's a nightly rounds bigger barrel we're standing at about 5 yards 10 yards so we're going to take a frontal shot try to hit the top but that'll work so we'll go up and check out how that did in quite a bit on the top I'm sure if it was direct hit gun right through but I like to be aggressive shot so once again we'll just count that so far not so good no penetration but you know I'd still still leave a mark all right now we've got the 45 ACP turned 30 grand Full Metal Jacket out of the Smith & Wesson M&P about 10 yards again fuckin minced of course here's a good get alright we'll go check that out really quick so alright that was a hit on the front and it kind of grazed it off to the side I made a huge debt but still didn't penetrate it's a pretty slow moving around again so so far it's performing like the other helmets just kind of getting up a little bit more than the other ones so far it's kind of a thin steel but now we're going to move on to the next weapon and I got the 7.62 by 25 millimeter out of the Yugoslavian I'm 57 same distance about five yards typical results let's go up and check it out at the entrance hole right here and the exit holes in the back so cut through the webbing that's definitely penetration pretty substantial one slowly gone through the wearer's head and yeah but that you know I have yet to have one steel helmet that holds up against Tokerau Brown at least this thing go through both layers so that kind of says I'll move on to the strap simulation and then pick a new helmet after that the Benelli supernova tactical now with eight pellet double-aught buck these ones that I loaded you can check on the other video from about five six yards course right off there so we'll see how that does you know that's kind of simulating shrapnel so we'll go up there alright sorry about the wind again guys it's a very windy today but figure we come out anyway that's your impact from double-aught buck at about 10 yards simulating shrapnel I'm not a very good that's one of the worst buckshot hits that I helmets taken okay so maybe for helmets kind of uh not as good as the other ones for shrapnel in my opinion we're gonna get a fresh helmet and we're going to start with rifle rounds we use the ak-74 with the five four five and then some other ones so we'll get onto that now okay now we've got the Bulgarian I'm 74 from sentry icepuck twelve yards five out of it so this should go right through we can hit the talk I hit it thank you good Brittany evil press yes and I see alright we'll go up we'll check that one out alright so this one had the entrance hole right there as usual exit nice clean through and through it's typical for that caliber it's a small high-velocity round similar to the 223 so that's why we're not going to be using that today not really surprised that this is all the rest of the helmets not one of them passed the five four five tests so now we'll move on to the seven six two three nine okay now we got the Yugoslavian SKS only a lot a couple rounds into here from clip or I guess most of them so my first hit was on top I could have used that but well went through the hole were the five four five one it looks like nice a five four five hole made it's Ellen that's the exit wound on a clean one the second one I hit was right there in the front went through the five four five hole blew out the back 76039 like a hot knife through butter now just for shits and giggles we're going to use a 30.6 out of a 1903 Springfield rifle and we'll be staying about the same distance hopefully it makes a nice little hole in and out all right now just for shits and giggles no let's go through but I just want to show you what a rifle full powered rifle due to a ah hung girl Yugoslavian steel helmet out of the 90 ml 350 gram to ball and let's hit it right the bottom check out the damage I supposed to kind of angle down got one hit there one hit there I blew out that little part and hit the stomp and blew that up yeah that's gonna go clean through yeah so Cuddy doesn't check shit for ballistic protection maybe cuz you're playing baseball or something you hit in the head with a baseball or you know whatever I'll set your head on something riding bike whatever but yeah I wouldn't trust this thing as far as I can throw it with ballistic protection so yeah if you haven't watched my other videos go ahead and watch them we've got a bunch of other Eastern Bloc helmets and you know some Western European helmets that we tested and it's kind of cool to see how all of them fare differently this one obviously didn't do so hot but you know what now you know and I didn't destroy a piece of history because there's a thousand of these around this one was in shitty shape as well as the other one so what's good if you're going to come now you know hope you enjoyed the video as well as the other ballistic test videos you haven't checked my I'll throw the links in the copper yeah I know what you think do more ballistic tests the summer different models of helmets same calibers and all that stuff so we have fun doing this too and it's kind of nice finally I can see what these actually protect against as far as weapons instead of just we see in the movies and things
