    Hello Thomas, thank you for your question regarding the Norma ASO 380 Auto 65 Grain Frangible ammunition. This type of ammunition is designed with specific characteristics that are worth considering for self-defense scenarios, including its penetration capabilities and effectiveness at certain distances, like 25 yards.

    1. **Penetration Testing**: Frangible ammunition, like the Norma ASO 380 Auto 65 Grain, is designed to disintegrate upon impact with hard surfaces to minimize over-penetration and ricochet risks. This makes it a safer choice in environments where bullet pass-through or ricochet poses a significant risk, such as when shooting steel targets at a close distance. However, it's important to note that frangible rounds may not have the same penetration power as traditional jacketed hollow point (JHP) rounds. While frangible rounds can be effective for self-defense, they might not have the same stopping power as other types of ammunition at longer distances.

    2.**Self-Defense Considerations**: For self-defense purposes, especially against animal threats, it's crucial to choose ammunition that provides a reliable balance between stopping power and safety to minimize potential risks. It's also important to practice and be comfortable with the chosen ammunition and firearm.

    For detailed information about the performance and recommended use of Norma ASO 380 Auto 65 Grain Frangible rounds, I would suggest contacting Norma directly or consulting with a firearms expert.
