Watch as .22 Plinkster puts the all new CCI BIG 4 .357 Magnum Shotshells through the paces.
There has been quite some excitement over the new offering from CCI. The CCI BIG 4 .357 Magnum Shotshells offer bigger size #4 shot in a pistol cartridge. The normal shot size for previous shotshell pistol cartridges is the ultra small size #12 shot.
So how does it shoot? At close range these cartridges are great for vermin. This is especially true when the shorter barreled handguns are used. Why is a shorter barrel better for shot cartridges than a longer barrel? It is due to the barrels rifling imparting a pattern busting spin on the pellets from longer barrels and not as bad from the shorter barrels. This is good to know when dealing with any shot cartridge fired out of a rifled barrel.
