    Yes, they are bottlenecked to fit the cylinder of a revolver.
    Never measured how much shot, just filled it up.

    The 357 Max brass seems like the way to go now, but
    back in the day, was not created yet

    ?? I do not remember, I just had an assortment and used what would fit and
    then took it to the store and bought more?

    skeettx,

    Like your shotshells made from .223's. Should yield more charge weight.

    We have one species of rattle snake and in 6 years have seen three so not too common at my location, but there are areas near me with higher concentrations. It is illegal to destroy them but if they are near the home they need to go.

    I may make some up using #8 shot and 3 gr of Promo for giggles. With the bottleneck, do you have problems inserting the over powder wad? Do you use cardboard?

    Thanks for sharing!

    For larger snakes I don't see why shooting them more than once would be a prob either though. Killem dead...
