On Test: steel shotgun cartridges on rabbits

Steel has well-documented benefits and drawbacks for shooting pheasants and pigeons – but how about rabbits. Simon Whitehead tries out steel shotshells on ground game at his home in North Yorkshire to see how they perform, plus he cuts open the rabbits to look at the terminal ballistics of both steel and lead shot.

Cartridges used:
▶ Hull Steel Game 32g 4-shot
▶ Hull Steel Game Extra 28g 5-shot
▶ Gamebore Bespoke 32g 5-shot lead
