CCI Rimfire/Handgun Shotshell Loads
ShotShells vs. Flying Squirrels...
These worked great. The shot doesn't have enough inertia to even break through drywall, so I found em safe enough to help with the flying squirrel probelm in my attic... The shells don't have enough power to cycle my 10/22, however worked very well in my little bolt remington. They were very effective at 10 yrds- However I always followed up with a second shot just to ensure the squirrel wouldn't pull a frankenstein. The pattern was significantly diffiernt on two rifles I tried them on, about 10 in diameter at 10 yards in my remington and greater with the 10/22. Although pricey, I am glad I bought them... especially when you wake up to hear critters in the attic at night...

Keep some things in mind ....
1) avoid the rimfire - they're ust too small and lacking in power/shot size.
2) THis ammo is NOT intended for hunting - it's for control of small pests in areads where shooting a bullet is dangerous.
3) Pretty obvious when you see the blue plastic shot capsule it isn't gonna function in most autoaders , pumps , etc. Made with revolvers and single shot or bolt rifles in mind.
4) .357 , 9mm if loaded directly into chamber and not trough magazine(LOL!) , and .44 , .45 calibers is good snake medicine , even for big ol' rattlers & water mocassins . Again - it is not intended for hunting and the blue plastic is a good clue it will glop up your Gatling gun replica.Price could be more friendly.

CCI shotshell hunting with a .22
These shotshells are great! Today I went bird hunting and saw a 4 inch bird flying by, I quikly took aim and fired and I killed that bird at 25 yards! Wow! It says ther'e for short range pest control but they still have a range of 25 yards! I recomend these to anyone wanting to kill those pesky starling black birds or snakes!

Good safe round
This is a good safe round to keep around for some of the smaller pest. You can safely shoot them and not have to worry about the round bouncing off the ground or going too far if you happen to miss. They are cheap enough to have a few boxes stashed away for when ever you need them.
