    My brother has a few small boxes of those shotshell rounds in .38/.357

    It's not much use for self defense, there just isn't enough energy behind it. Very practical for something such as snakeshot though.

    I've used this type of ammo before.

    I believe it is potentially damaging to the rifling in the barrel but not 100% sure on this. Not something I'd use in a gun I cared about personally.

    I have used this before. I DO NOT like it or trust it. I will NOT load it ever! Just for use when I go BS shooting outside for fun.

    I packed it once, going camping, packed it in for the snakes in my 40.

    I pulled the trigger, and NOTHING! Now it did work once I put it re cocked in back into the chamber, than it worked. But like I said I would never pack it again!

    I have tried this ammo in Glocks and it does not have enough power to cycle through the next cartridge.

    Also the spread pattern was way too wide at a 7 yard target.

    I could see using it to shoot a small varmit in the woods, but not for defensive purposes.

    I wasn't planning on using it for self defense (if I bought it). I was more or less curious if anyone had shot them, and what they thought.

    I've tried it. Cycled and patterned fine, but I have a hard time seeing a situation where I'd want it around here.

    Maybe I'd use it if I was somewhere I was worried about snakes. But that's about it.

    The complete and utter truth can be challenged from every direction and it will always hold up. Accordingly there are few greater displays of illegitimacy than to attempt to impede free thought and communication.

    I have not tried it, but will buy it next time I see it (.38 Spl). I have heard it works better in revolvers as semi-autos may not cycle. I believe it is for no more than 15 feet and pistol rifling may cause a spiral spray effect.

    I've used it to let the kids shoot squirrels. 38. only. For self defense if you are concerned about accuracy, my wifes grandfather, who was a treasury agent, carried a round called "Scorpion Stingers" . It was a three projectile "hydra shok" 357. round. I have a box put up as a keepsake along with some other items he left her. The tiny shot sheels wont cycle any autos that I have in any chambering. I have them in 38. , 44. , and 22. long rifle. I shot a bat once with the 22. round from point blank and there wasn't much left. Just a big splotch on the wall. Boy did my wife pitch a fit!!!
