Rio Ammunition #6 Shot 1-1/8 oz. 2-3/4" 12 Gauge Ammo - 25 Rounds
Upland bird hunting, be they pheasant, partridge or just clays, continues to be a popular shooting sport that is no longer confined to just the upper class. The creation and continued survival of numerous new shooting clubs and facilities throughout the US testifies to this fact. With that growing popularity comes a proving ground of shot shells that are dependable and affordable. RIO has entered and proven itself in that competition with their 12 gauge game loads: 2.75” shells loaded with 1-1/8 ounces of #6 shot: roughly 250 lead pellets measuring .11” in diameter fired at 1280 feet per second. This delivers enough mass to vaporize clays in a truly stress relieving manner or - in a more traditional venue - bring game home for the freezer.
RIO is a subsidiary of the Spanish MAXAM firm and has production facilities in Texas as well as Spain, the UK and Turkey. It is a prominent brand in international competitions as well as hunting reservations and produces over half a *billion* shot shells annually. While not as commonly known as Remington or Estate, RIO is fixing that as the scatter gun sport becomes more and more popular among casual participants as they become enthusiastic aficionados.
