The projectile has a hard metal core that gives the ammunition a very good penetration on hard targets. Conventional AP ammunition uses hard steel as a penetrator. The Tungsten material has a much higher density, which makes the penetrator much heavier than a steel penetrator of the same size. The projectile penetrates at least 15 mm steel at 300 meters or 20 mm of steel at 100 meters.
