Is there a reliable frangible ammo on the market for edc/self defense? I have read conflicting reports and have seen nothing from mainstream manufacturers. Concern is over penetration and ricochets.
Over penetration is always gonna be a hot topic. From what I’ve decided on, look at what you’re looking for in regards to the level of penetration. It’s not an exact science and is based on perfect hits. I don’t carry anything that advertises less than the feds minimum requirements but I dont stress if it’s a little over.
A miss is a miss and if it goes thru a target into someone or something else you would have no way of preventing that. Mitigate the risks but nothing will be 100% certain
Here’s some info on choosing the right ammo for the right purpose:
