There are two basic types of frangibles. Those designed to substitute fmj bullets and those deigned/marketed for self defense and limited penetration.

The fmj replacement frangibles act like an fmj until it hits a solid object like a steel plate.

The other frangibles for defense purposes are usually light weight and have very limited penetration. Nothing I am interested in and IMO they are gimmick rounds.
