With frangible ammunition, the projectile will disintegrate when it comes into contact with a hard, solid surface but will also provide devastating results on soft tissue. Basically, this round is going to inflict the critical damage that is expected of it but will not travel where it is not supposed to. In a home defense situation, this is ideal to prevent over-penetration of a projectile through the target and into walls, ceilings, and doors. Additionally, frangible ammunition will not ricochet off of steel targets--a key consideration when shooting rounds at the range.
By design, subsonic ammunition does not break the sound barrier and provides the shooter with a much quieter experience compared with that of standard ammunition. It is most commonly used in suppressed firearms. Imagine shooting at the range without the usual cumbersome hearing protection and being able to carry on a conversation as if you were in your own living room. Subsonic ammunition also has less recoil than other types but does not sacrifice on quality or reliability.
Unlike the average hollow-point round which expands but usually remains intact as one solid piece, fracturing ammunition has a projectile that breaks up into several different pieces upon impact. This creates various wound canals which can incapacitate the intended target. If an animal is on the receiving end of an EBR fracturing round, chances are it will be a successful hunt. This round is ideal for hunters due to its efficiency.
