    From past experience with shotshells in 38 and 44 - I rather doubt you are gonna save many dB's!! Even the humble .22LR shotshell is loud enough to be well heard - IMO.

    Hard to carry out the ''nutralization'' by firearm and keep all that quiet.

    use .22cb short in a rifle or manual
    orperation in a pistol. The .45 shotshells are loud.

    Is it a bad snake?

    Good snakes kill pests.

    That reminds me - in a single action revo - Aguila ''Super Collibri'' are very handy - just a pop. But of course, single projectile needs a good aim ........ but if you get some try em out so as to know where they shoot.

    That said - a pellet rifle is another excellent option!

    If it's not poisonous it'll keep the rodents away, if it is a long handled shovel is quick silent and effective when applied edge first behind the head!

    Yeah, and you can kill the snake that way, too.

    Beat me to the shovel suggestion. I kind of look at it like this: "Why waste a good bullet when an old shovel does the job as good if not better?"
    I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.

    Why kill the snake? If you must for some reason, just use the shovel idea, a knife pellet gun etc.

    My 7 year old son stepped on this copperhead last month...

    He must have been lucky to have stepped on or right near its head. I can't have these hanging around the yard; the neighbors' children were with mine when they found the snake.
    My neighbors understand.

    This was 1 shot of .44 Speer shotshell. I imagine the .45 would give similar results.

    nice shot...

    my Dad just shot a diamond back with his Glock 19...

    those federal HP's make a nice mess of things as well.

    (hmmm, I wonder 9mm shot shells?)
