Default 22lr shotshell

Can you put 22lr shot shell in a ruger single six, and fire it without damage to the gun? It would make a good snake gun I think.

Yes you can, works well on snakes at no more than 6 feet or so out of the revolver. Use them only in the .22lr cylinder, "NOT" in the magnum..

He could get the .22 magnum shotshells (if they still make them) and fire them out of the magnum cylinder-they would be better than the .22LR shotshells. The .22LR shotshells have a very small amount of #12 shot whereas the .22 magnum shotshells have #11 shot-not much difference but enough.

What about out of a 10/22 rifle? Yea this has probably been covered but I never really thought to ask this question thus Iv never looked for a answer to it either.

It's highly likely you would have to manually cycle a 10/22 or any other semiauto rifle except for the Remington model 552. The reason for this is because the shot charge & amount of powder develop less pressure than the "regular" .22LR ammo. The reason the 552 will usually cycle them is because it was designed to fire .22 short, .22 long, and .22LR. Be SURE to clean it properly after shooting shotshells.

You won't hurt your .22lr shooting them. It didn't hurt mine.

I tried some and tried to pattern them on paper to see what would happen. I tried some in a 6" barrel .22 revolver and you really have to be within 10 feet to see any holes in a paper target. Further out then that they spread out considerally and most don't show up on the paper. I got the best pattern at around 6 feet (give or take a foot). Maybe the barrel length makes a little bit of difference?

I never shot at a snake with it though. Just paper targets. That was my personal experience with them in a .22 revolver.

When I tried shotshels in a .357 it was a much better........haha

22 shotshells are notoriously bad performers consistency wise. I have had to shoot more than once to hit a snake at about 4 feet. A 38/357 shot charge is significantly better. On the other hand, the little #12 pellets often clump together. My uncle shot at a neighbor's beagle many years ago with a 22 shot round out of a Marlin 22 rifle. His intention was to scare it out of his garden, he did not want to hurt the dog at all. He was a dog lover and then some. It turned out the neighbor's dog was a registered Beagle worth $900, and he dropped him dead with a little clump of pellets that stuck together and went right in the earhole. It was a measured 90 paces. The neighbor was crying, my aunt was crying, my mother was crying, and I think I even saw a tear in my uncle's eye, even before he got the bill.
