Forget all about hollow point (or expanding bullets in general) when shooting rats. The bullet will have exited before it expands. Also, think about what all that excess velocity is going to do after the bullet exits the rat. It has to go somewhere (meaning it will fly off into places unknown). If you must use a solid bullet, then think the opposite of what you've been thinking. You need slow and safe at those distances. Personally, I've used CCI CB Cap loads for doing squirrel reduction duty around the house. I find that the Shorts tend to be a little more accurate than the longs in my rifle.
