    probably 22 rimfire. You can’t shoot one through a quarter.

    Maybe 25 caliber but that would be close. Depends on where you hit it.

    Welded Chain Mail could stop 22LR, the plate armor did not stop the earliest rounds smooth bore rounds. The solution was to make the breast plate thicker and drop the arms and legs and helmet so the soldier would not get as tired wearing it.

    Probally a .22 cal short

    If the angle was right, maybe even a .22 cal long

    But that’s about it.

    Using just chain mail and at a distance of not more than ten feet, chain mail will most likely shatter from impact of a bullet making it into shrapnel. However, it is useful in defense of knife attack.

    it depends on the range of the weapon being fired and the gun it is being fired out of. But most likely 22. caliber rimshot bullets…
