I’d be willing to give it a try and document it on video.  I’m guessing that the caliber of bullet used for armed conflict is similar to a 30-30, and my guess is that it would go right through it at 100 feet.  Cement plaster would slow it quite a bit.  Want me to set it up?  I probably need to do it in September when farming slows down.  No paperwork would be required, LOL.
