We conducted depth-of-penetration experiments with ogive-nose steel projectiles and limestone targets to determine the penetration limit velocity. The penetration limit velocity is defined as the minimum striking velocity required to embed the projectile in the target. For striking velocities smaller than the penetration limit velocity, the projectile rebounds from the target.
