For short-range pest control. Pellets are contained in a plastic capsule for better pattern and cleaner barrels.
Premier rifle match cartridge is used by pistol competitors. It's loaded to be subsonic at the muzzle to avoid buffeting in the transonic zone. Careful assembly and tight accuracy specs gives you the winning edge.
Rated 5 out of 5 by CBJEEP Good safe round
This is a good safe round to keep around for some of the smaller pest. You can safely shoot them and not have to worry about the round bouncing off the ground or going too far if you happen to miss. They are cheap enough to have a few boxes stashed away for when ever you need them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gigger Great value
I use this in my 22lr when i frog gigg and they do the job amazingly and are just fun to shoot. Everyone says that they can't take squirrels but they arn't ment to they are for pests and snakes. If you frog gigg i would try these. They are clean to shoot but dont have the power to cycle an auto loader so i cycle mine manualy. Great buy and lots of fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kawliga Keep some things in mind ....
1) avoid the rimfire - they're ust too small and lacking in power/shot size.
2) THis ammo is NOT intended for hunting - it's for control of small pests in areads where shooting a bullet is dangerous.
3) Pretty obvious when you see the blue plastic shot capsule it isn't gonna function in most autoaders , pumps , etc. Made with revolvers and single shot or bolt rifles in mind.
4) .357 , 9mm if loaded directly into chamber and not trough magazine(LOL!) , and .44 , .45 calibers is good snake medicine , even for big ol' rattlers & water mocassins . Again - it is not intended for hunting and the blue plastic is a good clue it will glop up your Gatling gun replica.Price could be more friendly.

If the rifle and the m&p 15 both fire .22 LR then yes they both should shoot the cartriges. HOWEVER, using the "shot shell" cartriges out of a rifle can damage the rifling (grooves) that was formed into your barrel to impart a "spin" on the projectile and give you greater accuracy/range.PERSONALLY I WOULD NOT use "shot shell" cartrige in ANY firearm that has rifling, to avoid damaging the barrel. If you really need to use them (I have used them to kill copperheads (snakes) I would advise you get a derrenger or "snub nosed" revolver that has no/limited rifling. You can pick up a 2-shot double barrel derrenger/pocket pistol for about $100-$150, maybe cheaper depending on where you look(they will fire regular 22LR bullets to)Hope that helps!
