Other than testing in in ballistic gelatin there is probably no way to be sure. A lot will depend on the alloy used as to whether it will expand too quickly but even soft alloys don't disintegrate unless the target is a steel plate.

I have not shot the Syntech ammo before. But because they are billed as range ammo, I would believe that they are pretty soft lead, and would deform easily if they hit a bone. A Brinnell hardness test of the bullets might tell you a lot. Harder bullets, like made from linotype would hold up better. Very hard lead (like monotype) might fragment when hitting a bone.
