    The 2” barrels are what go to the woods. When I “develop” a snake load, I test it on a cardboard tray on the ground. I usually test at 3, 4, and yards. My usual stack is powder, dryer sheet wad, shot, index card wad, nail polish sealant, crimp.

    After making all those frogs mad this weekend, I wanted to see how these penetrated. BTW, this was a .38/357 CCI Shotshell at about 5-6 feet. I don’t like CCI because I’ve had too many with extra thick rims.

    Thats pretty good penetration. Instead of a dryer sheet as a wad try cutting a piece of the outer cardboard cover from a box of primers. You may also have to increase your charge with the short barrel. You could be loosing up to 200fps with the 2" less of barrel length.

    If I can get some time tomorrow I'll load up a few and try them in my 2" Taurus and see if I can find what it likes.
