Try it on a watermelon or a gallon plastic container full of water and
you'll see. If you use a normal .38 special, it will make a hole (the
plastic container would leak, from one or more likely two small holes).
 A hollow-point round will make it shatter -- the hollow point expands
and more energy is transferred into the target, more quickly. A Glaser
safety slug will make it explode, and a mercury-filled round has a
similar effect.
