Our standard plate is 10" x 12" Our plates will fit most carriers on the market and are designed to provide maximum coverage without expensing mobility. Unlike many other trauma plates on the market ours allow you to shoulder your rifle comfortably and allows for various positions. One angle on our plates is cut deeper than the other; this is designed to accommodate the butt-stock of your rifle. We found that the standard cut or other ergonomic cuts interfere with properly seating the stock in your shoulder and force for a stock to ride high on your shoulder. The Steep, but not deep angle gives you the best of both worlds. Maximum coverage of your vitals and better ergonomics while shouldering your rifle.
