.40 Cal Shot Shell

Anyone ever use this in a Semi? Got a S&W .40 cal and was thinking of trying this out for snakes, but someone told me I might have ejection problems?

Got a (5?) pack of them in .40 S&W but haven't used them yet (probably should give them a try before I trust them in my Glock). I know in my .22LR I'd have to manually cycle them through, not sure how they'll function through a semi auto pistol though.

Edit.... I did a quick Google search and found some reviews of them on Cabellas website and it seems to be hit or miss. Some guns functioned flawlessly while others had failures to eject.

A coworker said he had to cycle manually in his .22 as well becasue the shell was to light to eject. My S&W throws my FMJ's about 10 feet so maybe it will work. I'll find out this weekend and report back. Thanks for the info.

went to Bass Pro and spoek to the gun guy there, he said more than likely it will jam after the first shot so I will just use my 185 grain FMJ's.

Dont take the advice of some dip shit at BPS. They are the most worthless people I have ever spoken too when it comes to fire arms.
They are not expensive. Buy a pack and try them on your own.
Good luck with that snake and regular ammo.
Went .410 Snake Charmer and never looked back!

generally shot shells don't cycle semi autos. Even .22 shot shells won't cycle. Just pull the slide each time. If you miss a snake with a shot shell then the last thing you should be doing is making it more difficult with a penetrating round.

Yep...
When we pull pigs out of the trap at my house we shoot CCI CB shorts in my 10/22 because they are no louder then a supressed 22, and they will not cycle.

I've shot 2 so far with the FMJ ammo at my lease this year with no problem, but myu luck may run out. I used to have a .410 charmer years ago and some bitch ex GF gave it away when we broke up. I loved shooting turtles with it, it's a fun little gun.

True dat. Well this is a good excuse to buy a S&W .357 revolver...right? Haha.
