Any bullet will ricochet, given the proper surface and angle. After all, one can bounce a rock off of water.

Frangibles tend to ricochet in shards, rather than whole, so are safer.

If it time to bury them, it is time to dig them up.

VMAX or TNT are very frangible and although the base can ricochet, its going to be pretty small and have so little mass, it will run out of steam pretty quickly.

Vmax or grenade for me. They both have a copper base so a ricochet could still be possible.
