    Only logical thing to do would be to test Mercedes integrity to make sure the car can really stop a bullet. Matt Farah from "The Smoking Tire" was confident enough to stick Mercedes reputation in front of his personal safety. (M&P 9mm with hollow point bullets of unknown grain).

    If he hadn't used a hollow point it may well have penetrated. A hollow point is designed to expand on impact to transfer its energy to its target. A none hollow point round would have its energy concentrated into a smaller area thus assisting in more penetration.

    Still, pretty dumb way to test it.
