I'm sure the forum grunts can give a more verbose response, but here's a brief reply:

small caliber AT gun rounds rarely had any explosive charge. The round was a solid slug (or "shot"), and was meant to penetrate the armor and damage the crew either directly, or indirectly via spalling. The shots can also cause explosions if they ignite the fuel tanks or loose ammunition inside the vehicle.

If an AT round has an explosive charge with a delayed detonator, it will likely eliminate the crew if it penetrates their compartment. But a solid shot alone is enough to rattle a crew if it penetrates.
