    No, it probably would disintegrate before it penetrated any distance in the body. You want both expansion and penetration in a defensive round.

    While it has mass it could fall apart on the hard parts IE rib cage or skull.

    I thought frangible (excluding MagSafe and Glaser) was designed to reduce lead toxicity and ricochet danger at shooting ranges. In any event, a bad idea for defense use IMO. Plenty of good JHP choices out there.

    Not a chance.

    I have been to a number of indoor ranges recently, and all they allow is the frangible ammunition due to the amount of lead released into the air from other types. This might be a good solution to being charged $15 for a box of 50 by the range. I don't see this ammunition as a viable defense ammunition.

    90 grain hollow point is pretty much worthless for self defense. I'd take ball .380 over that. Anything less than 124 gr in a hollow point isn't a good idea. I'm sure many will disagree though and start posting ENERGY and what not though.

    Nope. The bullet shape looks like it would be finicky feeder also.
