The rifle bullet might go through a vest .. While it might reduce the velocity the trade off is that the vest may have helped reshape the bullet , flaring it out to do MORE injury even when lesser speed. The vest might help reduce injury from a snipers steel jacket bullet, as it will reduce speed but not deform.

(the sniper needs to go through glass and similar and still have the bullet travel straight. Depends on his choice of bullet at the time.. He might know he has no glass in the way... )
