    1. I carry the “Judge” stainless with 2.5″ barrel down here in south Louisiana.
      #4 OR #6 works great for snakes in the yard or in the woods.
      000 buck or 45 LC works for 2 legged snakes anywhere else.

    2. A general unavailability of this ammo makes a used Taurus Judge more attractive at about $200. An various finishes are available new for $400 – $500.

    3. That’s great,but we have not been able to get the regular cci shotshell loads in our area for a year or more. No one has them in the stores or on line. I live in western oregon.I called cci once they just said they are trying and behind on everything. Tell them to get the snake loads back out first.

      1. @CountryBoy Too much money too . Gas check lightly crimped in works great for revolvers as would a under and over wad . And pick whatever shot size you wish . The CCI shotshell loads are around $1.40 each , When you can find them. No rattlesnake is worth that if you ask me when I can do it for less than half that.

        1. The same green florists foam ,known as Oasis thats used in blanks would work great for wads I’m thinking . A drop or 2 of clear nail polish etc . On the top to seal it.
