Damage - This is how much health damage a bullet does
24
Pen Value - A value used to determine how well a bullet penetrates armor and how much durability damage it does to armor, the higher the better.
25
Armor Damage % - A modifier used in calculating durability damage, the higher the better.
26
Frag. Chance - The chance a bullet will fragment, splitting into pieces on hit and essentially dealing 50% extra damage.
*Note that fragmentation chance is currently bugged, and chances will be lower than their chance implies, and any ammo with less than 20 pen value will be completely unable to fragment.

Notes
Armor effectiveness uses per shot, meaning X pellets hitting the target on every shot. Because each pellet does a minimum of 1 durability damage to armor, it becomes effective at breaking down armor and eventually penetrating.
