    Are the CCI Shotshell Cartridges Really Safe for Rifled Barrels?

    I have to admit that as a novelty item, it looks pretty cool. 165 #12 pellets in a .22LR.

    Well, I'm no barrel-maker, but I kinda think they make rifled barrels and smooth-bore barrels for shotguns for a reason. Why would anyone "blast" their rifled bore with #12 shot ?

    There must be a market for it, but I'm not a fan. Whatever works for ya, and I"m glad there's a choice.

    I have a hard time believing that #12 Lead Shot will damage Steel Barrel Rifling. Or, #9 Lead Shot in calibers other than .22 LR.

    You may well be 100% correct, sir. Due to the fact that I'm NOT 100% certain that there won't be any adverse effects from shooting shot thru a rifled bore, I'll pass. I'd have to manufacture a reason to do so, anyway. As I said, whatever works for ya....

    None taken, sir. Seriously, I am not a shotgun person, and I flat don't know if any problems could/would be created by shooting shot-shells through a rifled barrel. All I'm saying is that I'll likely refrain from doing so until I know for sure.

    Only thing to keep in mind about these shotshells, the shot cup will be spinning down the rifled barrel and will give you a donut shaped pattern at only a few feet. This is due to the shot being flung out of the barrel in a spinning fashion. Imagine a bunch of kids on a merry go round spinning really fast and getting flung off in rapid succession. This is the same thing that will happen with the Taurus Judge and similar designs (one reason I don't buy into their whole marketing pitch of perfect self defense gun). Anywho, these work great on rodents inside of 5-8 ft ranges. I haven't used the .22 shotshells on snakes, but the 9mm ones work well. Enjoy, they are a blast!

    It's snake shot meant for close range, and I mean close range.
