Pick these up at Wiggins Walmart. Haven’t seen any around in a long time.
I have some---can't remember where I got them.
I have some in .38 Special, too.
Remember when rat shot had crimped metal ends? I shot many of them when I was a kid.
Had a big spider that carries it's babies on its back on my bare galvanized tin, shop roof. Shot it with a Winchester No. 11 crimped round.
Then, it rained babies, and left ragged hole in roof.
Academy in GPT had some a few weeks ago, I need to pick up some more, got some in .38, 9mm, 22 and 22 mag, used the .22 mag, .22 and 9mm so far to dispatch some rats, surprisingly the 9mm cycled in my P320.
When I was at a gun shop in Ellisville a few weeks back they had 9mm in #4 shot as well.
I got some .38/.357 #4 Ratshot from cowarts arms and ammo. Gonna try to run it through my s&w 586
Academy in Gulfport carries these. I just bought a box 2 weeks ago.
I load my own in .38 Spl and .44 Spl.
I've got a brick of it. I shoot it in my Rem 572 smoothbore.
I know the Federal costs less. They ain't nearly as good as the CCI
I read once that farmers were often known to own at least one smooth-bore .22 rifle just to dispatch vermin and varmints with "rat shot"... back in the day, of course!
It was and is an effective round for such purposes and doesn't result in .22 size exit holes in the side of barns and chicken coops!!!
Who all made the smooth bore .22 besides Rem?
I keep 1-3 rounds CCI loaded in my go to 22 revolvers for the 1st shots on snakes. I was hanging a power line back up going to my paint shop today and I had a High Standard fully loaded with CCI. I have killed several rattlers over the years around that building that is in the edge of the woods. I guess they hang around to catch wood rats and mice. I have moth balls thrown around inside the shop now. A Rattlesnake laying in the leaves is just about impossible to see if they are not rattling.
Europeans had a variety of different guns that they called "garden guns".
Marty knows, I bet!!!
I use the crimped Federal shot shells in my Remington 580 Smooth Bore. The CCI (with the blue plastic shot cup) are intended to be fired from rifled barrels, as the rifling imparts spin, and screws up the pattern with the crimped shells. The CCI shot cup keeps the shot column together as is travels down the barrel.
I know Savage does. Or at least they used to:
Savage MKIG 22LR Smooth Bore AT
Remington, Savage, Marlin and Winchester made them. I would be surprised if Mossberd didn't make one to.
