GLASER SAFETY SLUG, Inc. developed the first frangible bullet in 1974 to provide reduced ricochet and over-penetration danger with improved stopping power over conventional bullets. In 1987, GLASER developed the round-nose frangible bullet offering guaranteed feeding reliability. In 1988 GLASER introduced the compressed core bullet to maximize bullet weight and the number of bullet fragments. This precision formed bullet also produces target grade accuracy, seldom found in a personal defense bullet. In 1994 GLASER improved fragmentation reliability to below 1000 feet per second through the use of soft, rather than hard plastic in the bullet tip.
