Is there a such thing as a shotshell for a .380 or for a 17HMR? Also known as a snake shot?

I've never seen any in .380. As far as I know, these are the only centerfire cartridges you find them in:

Thanks for the website! Does anyone know if they are bad for your gun?

I guess if you wanted to you could reload them, but I doubt if a shotshell would cycle in a .380 auto.

What is the purpose of having a .380 shotshell?

No, they won't hurt your gun.

Agreed. I use them "all the time" (an average of one shot a week or so, depending on season) in both revolvers (S&W J frame) and autos (M1911). Never had any problems.

I only really carry a .380 or a 17hmr with me when I go hiking I would like to have the shotshells for snakes and stuff. Although I have never needed to shoot a snake, I always just let them go on thier way but thought it would be neat to have, just in case!!!
