EDIT: sorry thats a little harsh - yes I agree any BB given velocity and surface can shatter - no question. However in the many years I and others at the field have been playing, nobody has EVER seen something like this - the BB literally disintegrated into power and fine particulate matter with sharp edges - and this was on impact at the bottom of lens at normal distances using chronied guns. None of us have ever seen a non-biodegradable BB do that. Disintegrate against steel or concrete at close range, yes, but not at playing distances against normal safety gear used by a player.
