Handgun shotshells are a very handy tool for those of us who live in the country. They are useful for dispatching small vermin such as rats and snakes, especially if you need to do so inside a shed, barn or even your home. The .22 LR shotshells in particular have just enough power to kill a snake or rat, while minimizing or eliminating damage to your walls and floor.
In the first video I test five different pistol shot loads against steel cans. In the second video I further test the traditional crimped .22 LR shotshell. I grew up with that type of .22 shotshell, which we called "rat shot."
