Abstract : The following conclusions are based upon the results of this investigation: (1) The ballistic properties of the new age-hardenable nickel alloy were superior to those of the Beryllium-Nickel 'K' Monel, and 'Z' Nickel alloys. The ballistic limit of the new age-hardenable nickel alloy was 350 f/s above the specifications. (2) With the excitation of K Monel, these alloys were magnetic. (3) Due to the high nickel content of these alloys, it is questionable that they can be considered for armor construction at this time.
