There was a design developed at Aberdeen Proving Ground in 82 called a Metallic Deep Penetrator  for 9MM that would penetrate 100 layers of kevlar and stop quickly with the body.  That was from 100 yards IIRC.

It was a pointed bullet with a hollow cavity in base to allow more propellant to be put in 9MM case.  The bullet was made on a lathe from copper rod.

The designer (long ago passed) estimated that loaded in a 357 magnum would penetrate 150 layers

It appeared like it was partially heated up and pushed into the slide cover plate, but mostly there was some kind of clear adhesive. I did not see any evidence of it being soldered. It was hard to tell as I could not get the cover plate off though.

I know I've used E6000 adhesive to hold all kinds of things together though  :)
