    Talking Lethality of 22 Rimfire CCI Sabot Birdshot

    Cottonmouth: 0, Richard: 1

    Scenario:
    Richard in "fear of life", standing on dock 4 feet above waterline, approximately 6 feet away. Images of Bert Gummer flashed through my head.....

    Facts: (...just the facts.....):

    Badguy:
    5 foot (oh...really about 14 or 15 feet, actually ) Cottonmouth,
    Weapon: Beretta Bobcat,
    Load: 22 Rimfire CCI Sabot Birdshot,
    Shooting distance: 12 Feet,
    Time: 8:46 PM
    Temperature: 89.75 F
    Other: CCI "patterned" nicely, BG's head above water,
    BUG: Glock 26, 124 gr GDHP

    Conclusion: Good shoot. Snake is now "Good Snake" Wife happy Doberman ran to house to protect wife and herself (probably not in that order..... )


    "He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."

    Nobody ever accused Dobermans of being stupid.

    Quite impressive result.

    I thought tho those CCI offerings were #12 "dust shot" - I have slain rats with those but am surprised a snake succumbed - good result

    I was happy with the shell performance. It is the "dust shot" like you said - #12. Of note, however, the Beretta failed to cycle properly with that load, so I had a FTE and FTL. Troublesome, but of no consequence in this situation.

    Hmmm...maybe an excuse to shop for a new 22, say a revolver? Hmmm...Yep, I think so..... the "Snake Special Wheelie"

    why limit yourself , cci makes that stuff in .38 special and there are 9mm wheelies too lol
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .

    True enough Richard - no good to cycle a semi that stuff - good to have a small wheelie on hand tho stoked with it - single six is one good candidate.

    Don't forget too those fun rounds by Aguila - ''.22 Super Colibri'' - 20 grain bullets with primer propulsion - real quiet and if you connect at that sorta range - well useful

    Well, I have some 9mm sabot #11 loads for the Glock too, but I was a little concerned about the report (we have neighbors across the lake), and I had GDHP's loaded and onboard in my pocket anyway. But, you have a GREAT point! I DO kind of worry about the Glock cycling with that same load......Hmmmm.........Excellent point, my friend! Excellent!

    Richard, when you get around to it, would post a report about the 9mm shotshells in your glock. I have been debating buying some of these to carry while hunting, for this very reason. I hunt in western Oklahoma, and there are alot of copperheads out that way. Thanks.
