    I came across an article about CCI Shellshots in 9mm. They made the point that there was a problem with FTF in a Glock 17. The made purpose of these rounds is for small critters and snakes. My question is do they cause any damage to the barrels ofthe pistol? Has any one used them?

    Have tried them all over the years from .22 thru .44 and zero damage to bore/rifling as the shot is lead. That's the good news.

    Now the bad news. They rarely cycle in autos consistently and depending on batrrel lenth and caliber (i.e. amount of #7 or # shot), they have very limited range and penetration.

    Copperheads at ten feet? Sure. Critters bigger than mice or small rats past 20 feet? Sometimes. Anything larger at any distance? Forget about it.

    I have used CCI ShotShells in .357 and .44s, and they spread out very quickly. This is caused by the rifling.
