I've shot my plates at 7 yards with pistols to try point shooting, but you get some little fragments brushing your face (and glasses / safety glasses) occasionally so I keep it around 10 yards. Haven't tried frangibles.

Even with frangible you get some peppering, in my experience. It is noticeably less, however, than FMJ and smaller pieces.
