They are spectacular. I actually like them a lot. They deliver massive devastation to the impact area but due to breaking up so quickly, do not over-penetrate.
They're easy enough to make. Use paraffin wax. Try a standard round of 7 shot and then try a wax slug made with the same against milk jugs or 5 gallon buckets full of water.
You'll have your answer.
