If you can find/order some, go with the Winchester or Federal
crimped brass shotshells. I se them online for $10 or so for 50.

I've tried both types (starlings in the fruit trees) and the CCI's
will just ruffle the feathers at the same range that the Winchesters
produce a dead bird.

I agree. The Winchesters and Federals have always killed pigeons and starlings better in my dad's hay barn than the blue tipped CCIs.

The CCIs jam allot in my brothers marlin model 60. They don't have enough velocity to cause the action to kick the round out.

I use them in a Colt revolver for snakes- the .22 Magnum shot loads work better (and my .38 shot handloads MUCH better). They have sharply limited range- most of the 22s are #12 shot (dern near lead dust) and rifling puts a spin on the shot that makes pattern open up. I keep it to about 5 yards.

The will not cycle in a Ruger 10/22, and probably will have cycle issues in other auto loaders. Used them in a Taurus Tracker with a 6.5" barrel- not very effective beyond eight feet. Probably will get better range and effectiveness with a rifle.

I"ve always wanted to play with them but never spent the money. I love everything else CCI has to offer so maybe I should just give them a try.

They are fine for small birds and mice at very close range. They use #12 shot, which is called "dust shot" for a reason. When fired from a rifle, the rifling spins the shot which causes it to disperse rapidly. Effective range is roughly 10 feet. If you use a 22 smoothbore, range is somewhat greater.
