Before hitting the field, RMA Armament makes sure that its plates can withstand extreme testing.
RMA Armament’s Level IV (Model No. 1189) NIJ Certified 0101.06 stand-alone ballistic plate defeated six .30 cal M2AP (7.62×63) rounds in a special testing at Oregon Ballistic Laboratory on Sept. 10, 2015.

This unprecedented performance test was conducted in OBL’s indoor range with barrel mounted 50 feet from the target. Among the six, .30 cal M2AP rounds defeated, a minimum back face deformation (BFD) of 28.72mm was recorded, along with a maximum BFD of 35.87mm.
RMA’s Level IV plate earned its initial NIJ 0101.06 certification on March 25, 2014. To earn a Level IV NIJ certification, a stand-alone plate needs to defeat just one .30 cal M2AP round with a maximum BFD below 44mm. But with this latest six hit test, RMA has proven through extensive research and development it has produced the highest level of protection in the world.
