RE: snake/rat shot
mine is #12 shot, CCI. I tried it for giggles on some starlings at about 30 paces. it done its job, patterns wide as hell so a close shot is a must. i pay about 11 bucks a box for i think its 10 rounds. i carry the first2 cylinders full of the shotshells and the next 3 are 240gr flatnose.
