    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.
