Human assailants aren’t the only predators you have to worry about; venomous snakes are a viable threat for many of us, depending on where we live and what we do. Anyone who has ever attempted to kill a snake with a shovel or even a target round knows neither option is ideal, because snakes don’t exactly pose for the best possible shot placement. With that in mind it’s better to use shotshells, but are you really going to walk around toting your shotgun? Probably not. You can, however, walk around carrying your .38 Special or .357 Magnum, and thanks to CCI you can get shotshell for them both. With good quality shotshell your snake will be properly ventilated and you won’t have to get too close for comfort. Problem solved.
These rounds are good for your .38 Special or your .357 Magnum because .38 Special cartridges can be safely fired in a .357 Magnum. They’re 100 grain and loaded with #9 shot, and you can be sure that buckshot will provide lethal force against a venomous snake. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 1000 feet per second. The average snake can strike out to a distance between one-half and two-thirds of their body length, and when you consider a large snake in the United States is about 6 feet long, that means you really don’t want to be closer than 4 feet. Testing done with this ammunition proves it’s effective even at 10 feet away, because, really, do you want to get closer?
There are 10 rounds in this box of ammunition from CCI, so it’s just enough to get an idea of performance. That means, of course, you’re going to be coming back for more. CCI was founded in 1951 and is well known for their superior primers and dedication to quality and innovation. Their plant is located in Lewiston, Idaho, right along the banks of the Snake River – how’s that for irony? After more than 60 years in business they absolutely know what they’re doing, and they do it well. This shotshell is great for pest control or target practice.
