Law enforcement and security professionals understand the value of using frangible rounds in their training. With regular target rounds the risk of ricochet is significantly higher; Full Metal Jacket, FMJ, rounds may simply strike the target and bounce back at the shooter themselves or others in the general vicinity. Using frangible rounds means they shatter on impact leaving numerous tiny pieces instead one large projectile. Frangible rounds have a number of applications but two of the most popular are steel plate shooting and close-quarters training. Shooting the lock of a door, for example, is far safer when carried out with a frangible round.
