    Wow those look great! How much shot are you able to put in those? Are my eyes deceiving me or do those cases have a bit of bottle neck from the chamber after firing? Sent from my Moto G Play using Tapatalk

    Ok you peaked my interest...does the 223 case give more capacity for shot I'm guessing? What size circlip and what powder charge do you use? Got any pics of these set ups? Sent from my Moto G Play using Tapatalk

    Tested on a soda bottle filled with water earlier...around 8 ft away Ventilated the bottle pretty well alot of the shot did not penetrate the other side. Expected and not a big deal....snakes are soft and easy to mess up their insides. Will...

    Thanks and going forward I prob will get some gas checks. Less time and gas checks can be had for a song...less mess and a bag will last forever if I am using them for snake shot only Sent from my Moto G Play using Tapatalk

    Not sure on grain weight....from what I can tell 80-100 grains ish? I'll take pics of the pattern at 6 to 10 ft on a paper plate or cardboard box. I don't expect it to be effective past 10 ft but it doesn't need to be....they may not be as...

    Sharpened a 9mm case with a chamfer tool and used an old 2x6 as a backer...hammered it in lightly through the card and punched out the little wads through the primer hole with 14 ga wire (any wire or stick or mail that would fit through the...

    Depends on what you want to do with it too...16 grains of 2400 is a good starting point for several molds. I load about 5 grains of titegroup behind a Lee 314 90 grain swc (sized down for my gun) for fun little mouse fart loads....very fun ...

    Bullseye is a bit faster than titegroup just by a smidge....so would 3-3.2 grains be a good starting point? Or are those BE loads light enough I could load comparable charges and find safe...just thinking about pressure in a 38. Both guns I...

    Hi all, Going to load a few 38 spc for snake rounds. I've cut several shot cards out of heavy business cards and have some shot (unsure what size...looks to be #8? It was found at the local metal recycling place inside weighted bags...bought...

    That Lee 309-113 flat nose seems like a good candidate. I don't have that mold specifically, but do use the 90 grain swc handgun mold in 30 06 and 300 blk (308 win some too) for mouse fart loads over titegroup....wicked fun man. Cheap and giggle...

    How would one of those 38 or 45 pistol shot shells pattern out of a rifle length barrel? One of those Henry single shots with 357 load of shotshell (saw a post making shot cups out of old milk jug plastic) may do well at short range from a rifle...

    Cat sneeze loads for 30 would be a dandy and fun. I use Lee 314-90swc sized down and powder coated in a range of 30 Cal's over a very light load of Tite group... Any lightweight boolit would work with the same principal...stuff it in the case...
