    Ok so I did the Maths and looks I might have to use HPDE in select places instead of Hardox. I knew this might have been the case but still a little disappointed.

    You could always try thinner hardox. 5mm is really quite thick for a featherweight, especially all over. Carbide has 5mm hardox side armour and a 3mm raex base, and that's a heavyweight.

    The thinnest Hardox 450 I have worked with is 1/8" or 3.2mm.

    I heard about thinner stuff, but never had the pleasure to see it.
