Question

Is this "birdshot"? Can it be shot in regular 22 cal?

answer 1
.22 shotshells do in fact contain very small size lead shot: usually #11 or #12 shot size. Although they can be fired from .22 caliber firearms having rifled barrels (handguns or rifles); the patterns thin out rapidly after about 10 feet to the point of being ineffective, due to the spin effect placed on the shot charge by the rifling. I have a smooth bore Remington single shot bolt action .22 that was manufactured some years ago specifically to shoot .22 long rifle shot shells ONLY. It has some degree of choke in the barrel and shoots deadly dense patterns at distances up to 10 yards or so. I dropped a starling clean out of the sky on a passing overhead flying shot at about 30 feet distance and it was stone dead when it hit the ground. Since that particular model of .22 caliber firearm is no longer manufactured and I am not aware of any smooth bore .22 caliber firearms currently being manufactured: you will be forced to use .22 shotshells in a rifled firearm and as such they are limited to about 15 feet maximum effective distance. Hope this helps.

I would like to ad that this ammo does not cycle when you use it in an semi auto firearm ,especially a pistol. You will most likely have to cycle the ammo manually.
CCI does not recommend this for semi autos.

I just want to agree with the second person that commented here. This is like birdshot, just much smaller, about the size of candy sprinkles on a cupcake. They are a lot of fun to shoclosely and hand-thrown clay targets using a pistol. I have a Baretta Neos and shoot them at about 20 feet. Unless you are right on top of something shooting these with a rifle, I can't believe they would be fatal.

birdshot in a small bullet like a 22 would be pointless. Its a higher grain bullet. More force, travels faster(fps = Feet Per Second) Some 22 Carbine Models require or more High Velocity round like this to finish the action and load the next round or be ready to load the next round consistently. Short and sweet and answer it just a higher grain bullet.

Technically no, it is a rodent shot, very small balls. But you can shoot it with a regular .22LR. I believe you could shoot small birds with it, at close range, effectively. I have bought them before and they don't carry well, that is they are not really accurate for a long distance shot. But, they are great for mole, shrew, and the like. I used them in a Ruger 10/22 and a Remington Speedmaster 22LR and they worked just fine. Sorry if this is not helpful, I'm just a customer looking for answers like you.

Question

Has anyone used this to shoot an angry rattlesnake?

I don't want to take the risk of missing or not killing a snake that is getting ready to strike.

Thanks

Should be labeled as Snake Shot :
This is the only round I know to drop snakes in one shot.
Aim for head and they fall. no more movement, period.

Do not jam in gun like old mustard shot rounds (they were crimped and flared open upon being fired.)
