Delpérier, " Only the breastplate was proofed. Out of a group of 100, twenty sub-groups of 5 each were organised by order of weight. The lightest breastplates of the first sub-group were each subjected to the impact of three bullets fired at the middle of the breastplate from a distance of 40m. The group would only be accepted if the first three withstood this: it was required that the breastplate was not pierced by any of the three bullets, and that no more than one of them tore it."
