By exploding it very, very gently I was thinking of something along the lines taking a bucket of gravel and letting a puff of gas free in the middle. Causing the gravel to spread out. Thus guaranteeing many impacts all over the target. The purpose of which would be to be sure that no sizable fraction of the target remained in one piece.

Thank you for your concrete examples demonstrating exactly what impact means at those speeds. I knew it was impressive, but was unsure of exactly how impressive.
