    The first two rounds up in the cylinder of my Ruger LCR in .38 special +P is two of the CCI shotshells.

    I have a snake problem at my place too.

    I couldn't find any loaded ammo but did happen on some CCI .38 capsules. I opened up a dove and quail load 12 gauge to collect shot. Filled the capsule with shot and weighed the loaded capsule. I looked up a .38 spl Load using the the same weight bullet and loaded up some home made shot shells.

    So far 3 snakes, for 3 shots I would not recommend them much beyond 8 feet or so. That is based on shooting patterns on paper.

    I keep a S&W M-60 Ladysmith in the house for snakes. I have never figured how they could rate that gun a lady's gun, it hurts to shoot it. I try to relocate snakes if i can. But Wife doesn't like snakes and about the only way I found to stop her shrieking is to shot the snake.

    Thanks for the input, guys. I got some from Academy in Enid and I may get a chance to try them out when I mow the lot in a couple of days.

    I tried some in my 3" and in my 442 when I went to the range a couple days ago. The #9 shot was pretty ineffective up close and personal and the big 4 only slightly better. I once shot a 12" Copperhead with the .44 loads. Took a full cylinder thru my Mtn Gun to do much damage. The only ones I trust are the .45 ACP.

    I'm quite interested in the results of the .40 shotshells. I'm a sucker for three inch combat revolvers and a Ruger GP100 Wiley Clapp keeps showing up on my radar. It might replace my SIG P220 in the woods as well as a city carry.

    As soon as I try them out, I'll do an AAR.

    I reload my own in 357 and 44 mag. Bought capsules from Midway, and bought a bag of number twelve shot from somewhere. If you need some #12 I got about 73 lifetimes worth. Easy enough to load. The capsule is kinda fragile so gotta watch the expand crimp stages. I stored some in an Altoids box in the truck and through the course of the summer some capsules got heat damaged and no longer chamber. Killed two snakes and a freaking huge scorpion with them fairly effortlessly. Tested a cylinder to see where the dense portion of the pattern lay. If I recall correctly I need to aim about inch low at 8 or 9 feet.
