Sure, you can shoot a rat shot in a revolver – but is it the best idea? Rat shot is a type of ammunition that contains dozens of tiny pellets, and when fired from a handgun its patterns can be extremely unpredictable. That makes it less than ideal for self-defense situations, where you want to be able to put your shots exactly where you aim them.

Some people swear by rat shot for home defense since the little pellets are less likely to penetrate walls and injure innocent bystanders. But even then, revolvers are generally not the best choice for home defense firearms; most experts recommend shotguns or rifles for that purpose. So if you’re set on using rat shot, maybe just stick to a shotgun – or better yet, find some ammunition that’s designed specifically for self-defense situations.

The answer to this question depends on the revolver in question. Some revolvers are designed to fire only ammunition that is the same diameter as the cylinder, while others may be designed to fire a variety of different caliber ammunition. In general, however, most revolvers are not designed to fire rat shots.

Rat shot is a type of lead shot that is typically used for pest control and is much smaller in diameter than traditional bullets. As a result, trying to shoot a rat shot out of a revolver could potentially damage the gun or cause it to malfunction. Additionally, the small size of the rat shot means that it would not be very effective in inflicting damage on the target, making it essentially useless as a self-defense tool.

If you are looking for a revolver to use for self-defense, it is generally best to stick with a model that is designed to fire traditional bullets. This will ensure that your gun is effective and reliable, both of which are critical in a self-defense situation. There are many great revolvers on the market, so be sure to do your research to find one that meets your needs.

Yes, you can shoot a rat shot in a revolver, but there are a few things to keep in mind.

  • First, a rat shot is less powerful than traditional ammunition, so you may not be able to kill a large rat with it.
  • Second, the pellets may not all fit into the cylinder of your revolver, so you may need to use a smaller caliber gun.
  • Finally, because the pellets are relatively light, they may not have enough force to spin the cylinder of your revolver when fired, so make sure you test your gun before using it for pest control.

Yes, you can shoot a rat shot in a revolver. Just keep in mind that rat shot is quite a bit less powerful than regular ammunition, so you’ll need to adjust your aim accordingly. Also, because rat shot is less powerful, it’s more likely to ricochet than normal bullets, so be sure to fire only when you have a clear line of sight and are sure of your target.

You can shoot a rat shot in a revolver, but it is not recommended. Rat shot is a very small type of shotgun ammunition, and the pellets can easily get caught in the cylinder of a revolver, making it difficult to chamber another round. Additionally, the recoil from firing a rat shot can be enough to damage or even break the revolver’s cylinder.
