Less optimal fragmentation pattern and more "dead weight" that forms fragments too small to be useful. We are talking about 40mm after all where every gram is sacred :)

Well, it worked REALLY well for VOG-30, which is even smaller. Yes, not biggest part was optimal 0.5-2g fragments, but I'm not sure that this 40mm will be much better. Or will it?
