Need a source for CCI 38 special shotshells

My mother in law moved to New Mexico.
Her dogs already been bitten by a rattlesnake.
Carries a 38 special on trail rides and I have been unable to find any.

A quick Google search doesn't show any in stock at the dealers that list them.

Find a reloader to make some for her.

Yeah I've been looking all around as well I thought I had some left over but can't find find any.

I used to carry them when I worked the road and had to dispatch a rattlesnake or water moccasin.

Always kept an old model 28 with me to do the job.

I see you are in Ft Lauderdale, me in Palm Coast but no Walmart by me has these. I'm also looking for these in 38sp

Even their web site only lists it in 22LR

This is the one we are talking about that seems to be out of stock across the country

Just use cheapie wadcutters, at the range the shotshells are effective I would think she could hit a snake with a solid bullet as well, and be done with 1 shot.

Just watch the head on those things, they are never really dead !

Unfortunately the 38Spl shotshells are only effective at very short ranges. From horseback ranges the 38Spl shotshell will only piss of the serpent and probably scare the horse and buck the rider off.
