I have had fair luck with the .38 cal shot cartridges on snakes- (Pellets in a plastic 'shell'? ) Not as many snakes in CT as out west - but I must admit for all the little lead pellets they put in those I stopped one one time and saw that a piece of the plastic shot carrier had hit him (or her, snakes are hard for me to tell:-) ) in the head.
I'd just rather take my chances with a richocheting (#12?) pellet than a full 29 grain soft nose - or 'piece of the rock' !
ALWAYS WEAR EYE PROTECTION!
I forgot who made that "buntline" .22 - Ruger?

With soft nosed bullets all he had to do was shoot near the head into a
rock and off with the snakes head.
