    It has been shot with a 22 round. There isnt a pelet gun made that would dent the helmet that way.

    Of course, you always have to factor in just how far Away the shot that hit it came from too-it may well have been a nearly spent round. Or then again, it may well have been an idiot with his helmet at home proving a bet that his helmet would have stopped a round from across a football field distance....who can say?
