I am currently exploring materials which could be used to form penetrators. We currently work with sintered carbide which is expensive and makes up a significant percentage of the overall cost of end product. We are looking to penetrate steel sheets of varying thickness in the 320-370HB region. The penetrators travel between 600-800m/s. Carbide is obviously very effective and shows no deformation at all leading me to think it may be overkill. I am looking at modern alloys for a possible alternative and would love to hear some opinions on this.
