A quality pistol round should not fragment at all. Quality bullets like the HST, Gold Dot, Golden Saber Bonded, Critical Duty, etc. all have very high weight retention through all barriers.

They had one fired into a gel block, the penetration and fragmentation looked pretty decent
Also, be wary of gel block tests. Most people use commercial grade or food grade gelatin, and not ballistic gelatin. Additionally, the gel is not shot at the proper temperatures. Most is too warm, which makes for deeper, and more inaccurate, penetration.
