I've recall reading that a hand grenade has a 'kill radius' of a few meters tops. Remember that we're talking about the volume of a sphere here. The shockwave from the explosion is substantially smaller twice as far away.
However, in a confined space the pressure from the explosion can be carried a larger distance (as often exploited in movies).
If it was a splinter grenade then it could probably kill someone quite far away, but as distance grows, so does the density of the splinter. Comes down to luck / bad luck here I guess. I think splinter grenades are often used to take troops down within a certain radius, not necessarily kill them.

Jamen jag tror att han skäms, och har gömt sig. Vårt universum det är en av dom otaliga spermasatser som Herren i sin självhärliga ensamhet har runkat fram för å besudla intet.
