    I've shot Cci snake shot in 40, problem is not hot enough to work the slide so stovepipe. They feed ok. Alum. case. Look like 10 neck sized. May have to try WST load.
    Whatever!

    Case is a 10mm neck sized to 357 sig dim. Since I don't have a 40 anymore I have to depend on info from my neighbors on how a 40 feeds and such. I didn't realize a simple favor could get so complicated. I'm told my 10's necked down and sized do feed and eject.

    I've been told that most 40 S.A. actually H.S. on the extractor. I was looking for something that will work for snakes in S. Tx. when hog hunting. CCI (I think they use #9) only gives me one shot. Pattern is only good to maybe 5 ft. but that should be enough. The stovepipe is the problem, have to clear it vs just re-racking the slide. Sound like you have a good solution.
    Whatever!
