I believe they make or use to make .357 / 44 capsules that a body could buy
for snakes and such. Been so long I don't remember if you bought the capsules and reloaded them. Someone here will tell you better. What I do have is what many here call Rat Shot, or Bird shot in .22 caliber. Should I ever
encounter a snake here, that is what I would use to the head inside of 10 '
or less. A hoe and or shovel works wonders too.
CCI still makes what they call .22 LR shot shells and they are xpensive for me.
Over $4.00 for 20 rds.
Even a dead clock is right twice in a 24 hr. day
