Frangible ammunition can be useful in many situations, with personal defense in urban environments, or small rifle ranges, or steel target shooting at distances shorter than 75 yards being a few ideal scenarios. Frangible 5.56 offers a solid choice for home defense because you get all the ballistic benefits of using a high powered rifle cartridge, with the safety benefit of low chances of over penetration or wall penetration.

The concept of frangible ammunition is that a bullet dissipates into enough particles. This is why a high powered cartridge like 5.56x45 makes a good frangible round – the ballistics at close range are substantial.

Frangible ammunition also makes sense where ricochet is a potential concern, like when shooting at hardened targets at medium or close ranges; or where the backstop of a range is not substantial enough to be able to reliably stop fast moving rounds with penetration like the 5.56x45 (or other centerfire rifle cartridges) have.

This ammunition enjoys a solid reputation for when you might consider frangible rounds. The XM556NT1 is made by Federal and features a 50 grain Frangible projectile which will reliably feed in firearms on the AR or military platforms.

Packed in 20 round boxes, and sold in a case of 500 rounds.
