What is the "ball frangible" round good for!?

You don't get to choose how you are going to die or when. You can only decide how you're going to live.

Thunder Ranch in Oregon, for example, will only allow frangible ammo. It tends to be more expensive. Frangible is also good on airplanes for Air Marshals. You don't want to be piercing the hull, but a frangble round will still stop the bad guys.

Frangibles are great

I have some Extreme Shock brand 9mm rounds and the performance they exhibit on reactive, non-scientific targets (melons and milk jugs) compared even to +P Cor-bon is amazing. They do not, howver, impact close enough to point of aim of my guns, so I cannot confidently carry them as I think a hit with a good round is better than a miss with a great round (though I may be wrong). I do use them in my M4 however, as the weapon can be zeroed to a particular type of round and the effects of the 223 frangible round are nothing short of awesome on living tissue and the aforementioned non-scientific medium.

Sky God & I only hope

that the Sky Marshalls aren't shooting 7.62Xanything on dem planes. LOL
Frangibles on a range? I couldn't afford that sport, but Oregon is a little left of meathead, isn't it? Like Washington.

Oregon is

a refuge for sixties leftover hippies and politically correct global warming grandstanders. I believe it is leftier than Washington, but not by much. After all, Seattle's mayor (who wants to prohibit concealed carry in the city regardless of permit) refused to use salt on the roads during our foot of snow because he said it would be environmentally bad for Puget Sound. He apparently forgot that the Sound is salt water.

dimwit of the nth degree.
