The new improved .38 CCI snake loads Login/Join

I picked up a couple boxes of them today at the LGS. when I got home with them and began to admire them, I noticed they are labeled "Big 4". And they are loaded with 81 grains of #4 birdshot, offering "improved penetration". I'm not sure I'm thrilled with this. It's always seemed to me that the shortcoming in the old load was a lack of pattern density, not penetration. Anybody have any experience with this "new improved" stuff?

Everything I have is labeled 1/4 oz. #9, did they change it?
Edit:
Nevermind, there are different loadings.
From what I'm seeing it's for medium small critters, I've only every used these on snakes.

Thanks. Those patterns aren't dense enough to be reliable on a rattlesnake, in my opinion. Dang it.
