    I still haven't figured out what the flint is adding to the mix. Maybe an extra couple sparks on impact before it shatters.

    A steel-jacket FMJ will go through 1/4" steel plate anyway...mild black or stainless.

    Someone wanna explain that to me, please? I don't get it. Is he supposed to be making armor piercing? Incendiary? Tracer? What?

    So, shooting a steel plate with a cigarette lighter flint is going to make it burst into flame?
