Post Ballistic Tipped .223

I was wondering what the general consensus was concerning using Ballistic Tipped .223 like Hornady's Zombie Max for home defense.

There's a good video on YouTube where a guy shoots this ammunition at ballistic gel. It penetrated 3" at 100yds before fragmentation.. Many of the pieces went up to 6" in the gel.

I know min penetration should be 12", but considering over penetration issues with this round I'm wanting your thoughts on the issue. Do you think ?3? well placed shots from this round would be enough to stop a determined attacker?
