Frangible ammunition is designed to quickly shatter on impact with a hard surface. At first, this sounds useless, but in some situations, frangible ammunition is absolutely essential. Indoor ranges favor it because it shatters on impact with steel targets or hard backstops, reducing or eliminating the risk of ricochets or splashback. Some people also choose it for home defense. This is because frangible rounds penetrate much less than standard ammunition, a trait that significantly reduces the risk to bystanders and makes sure you hit what you’re aiming at, not what’s behind it. Frangible ammunition can be less effective in defense situations than standard ammunition, so do your research and consider your situation before you choose.
