    Shot Shells are pretty much worthless in my opinion. I once shot a rattlesnake 6 times in the head with Shot Shells in my .357 and all it did was piss him off. He had a lot of tiny holes but was still striking.

    Plus, I can only imagine how a prosecuting attorney would twist the use of Shot Shells around on you in court.
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    I don't know much about the LEVERevolution rounds, but I do wonder why you'd carry a round specifically designed for a lever action rifle in a revolver... There are tons of excellent .357 Mag rounds out there that will work fine in your GP100; you don't need something designed to get around the limitations of a tubular magazine...

    That said, I'm sure they're good rounds, it's just an unusual choice.

    And yes, carry snake shot (shotshells) when you expect to encounter snakes. Just don't think that they'll be worth a hoot against Snake Pliskin... ;)
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    Yes, I know what it says on the box. The fact is, though, that it was designed for lever actions - to provide a "pointy tip" profile for the projectile while remaining safe for use in a tubular magazine (where traditional "pointy" bullets may hit the primer of the round in front of them, causing the round to fire while in the magazine. This is, obviously, a bad thing.)

    I'm sure they'll work in a revo just fine, but so will any other round. Like I said, I don't think there's anything wrong with them, I just think it's an odd choice.

    well.. I guess i got some really hot factory reloads that look to be some generic hollow point and I have some NIB 125 grain semi jacketed HP. Both of this kick mighty spicey. Ive got the Hornady Leverevo in there because it puts a larger hole in a target than the remingtons i just mentioned do..

    If you're going to carry a .357 for SD, then load it for business, not bandaids.OMO

    Here's a ballistics test for you

    This shows the penetration you get from snake loads, in 38 special, which is the same thing used in your 357 is less than 2" of flesh.

    Correction, less than 2" of penetration in WATER. Flesh is much more resilient, nevermind clothing, bones, etc.

    We're glad you took them out, too, Broken - better you learn here than in a real encounter!

    Ah, you beat me to it. TBoT is a good website to check out. Their results tend to be a little too obvious: Snake shot is for snakes. Bird shot is for birds.

    That's what I learned from his/their experiments.
