Noprobs covers the dirty target case. Pembrey had large sand backed targets and lots of 30mm and definitely needed regular raking but it only needs a few to cause a ricochet.

Another cause is the soft target that is not as soft as you think.

An aluminum armoured vehicle is termed 'soft' but can still throw rounds off.
