Keeping Track of Your "Shattered" Shells

Anyone else keep tracking, or have a ball park idea, of the amount of "Shattered" shells on hit? Have this feeling my aim's a bit off. Was going through some older replays, noticed about 40% or more of my HE shells (from Benson) are shatters. Feels a tad high.

I don't know of a way to keep track. I'm 100% sure WG does, but they're not exporting the data in their API.

USN 127/38 HE shells will 'shatter' on 22mm+ armor without IFHE and 28mm+ with.

You will always shatter a lot of HE shells with the Benson - even well-aimed salvos will have a decent chance of hitting the deck or upper belt instead of the superstructure. I find that switching to AP is surprisingly effective, especially under about 7-8 km. You will easily penetrate the 25-38mm plating on non-German BBs and will even get citadel hits on IJN and RN CA/CLs inside of 5km - useful if they charge your smoke or you ambush them from cover.
