Yes, I have used them in both .38 and .45LC calibers. They work great at short distances. I used them on chipmunks and mice that had moved into the cabin. They are fun. I probably still have some .38s around.

I'm sure they've changed some over the years, but when I used those when I was a kid, they wouldn't kick out very well. My old .22 semi-auto would jam up with those. Kinda like they didn't have enough power to them.

x2 on jamming also probably not good for the rifling of the barrel.

The shotshells are not going to hurt your barrel. They will most likely jam in a semi auto. So if you don't mind shooting them single shot go ahead and try them.

Shot shells have different loads (lighter, to make room for greater volume, but lower mass projectile) which is often not enough to operate a semi-auto (especially in .22).

Great fun in bolt-action .22 LR however. Marlin is even making a smoothbore .22 Mag "Garden Gun" for small pests.

I'd be very cautious about tracers. There almost certain be be imported and would likely pose a threat to your barrel and/or action (cordite primers).

dude, i can nail squirrels, moles, and chipmunks out to 25-30 yards with those. they are fun, but jam the hell out of semi auto's. one busted open as the gun loaded it and it had a misfire and galled the whole thing into a solid piece. i had to chip away at the bb's with a pick get my gun working again.

I wouldn't use them in an auto loader. I have only shot them with revolvers. Autos are too picky about ammunition to use something like those, especially 9mms.

There are no "cordite primers". Cordite is a early type of smokeless powder that is no longer produced. I think what DuffMan was trying to say if the tracer ammo is imported there is a chance it is corrosive and you would need to clean your bore each time you shoot the ammo through it. If the firearm is cleaned properly there are no ill- effects on shooting corrosive ammo through you gun.

Corrosive primers used potassium chlorate as the oxidizer in the priming compound. most kinds of corrosive primers are beridan primed military rounds from before the mid 60's. i shoot some corrosive primers out of my milsurp guns, but i make sure as heck to clean them afterwards. As to the effectiveness of the shotshell rounds, they shoot great out my 10' barreled super blackhawk in 44 mag. If you ever wanna see a single bullet destroy a car, find some raufus rounds. i have a box of 50 of them for my nagant, and they blow the hell up and start a fire when the bullet impacts.

CCI shotshells are for revolvers, bolt actions, and single shots.

Don't use em' in semi-autos.

They're good for splitting Coke cans (full, warm, and well shaken) out to about 20 feet. I've never killed any living thing with them and honestly I'm not sure I'd want to try. There aren't any venomous snakes around here, and this loading is considered to be a "snake load" for areas where bites are common.
