Rio Ammo

Rio is an ammunition company with a heritage that dates back to 1896. Its parent company, MAXAM, is a global leader in explosive ordinance, providing state-of-the-art products to military personnel, law enforcement, and private citizens.

Rio is one of the top manufacturers of premium game and target shotgun loads. Although the company is based in Spain, they have a large manufacturing facility and office located in Marshall, Texas. This facility, which holds 105,000 square feet of space, creates and assembles a vast variety of hunting and target-shooting loads. Their products use the finest materials, including lead, steel, and bismuth.

The company uses a vertical manufacturing organization, which essentially means Rio creates, in house, many of the steps involved in ammunition manufacturing. By taking numerous steps under their roof, they can not only provide more affordable ammunition, they can meticulously monitor the quality and consistency of their products.

Hunter’s who need effective, reliable game loads often turn to Rio. By combining excellent materials, refined craftsmanship, and over 100 years of ammunition-manufacturing experience, Rio has superior shotshells for 12-gauge and sub-gauge loads. From upland birds to waterfowl to buckshot, Rio has everything the demanding hunter could need.

When it comes to performance at the target range, elite shooters know the importance of consistency and quality. Rio provides clean-burning ammo loads with perfectly-matched wads to give unmatched quality. Delivering dense, compact shotloads allows a shooter to consistently perform under the most advanced skeet or trap conditions.

Reloaders can also take advantage of the quality found from Rio. The company provides shot, wad, powders, primers, and hulls, giving consistency and reliability to any load.

One of the products that makes Rio so successful is their law enforcement line. Their shotgun ammunition includes lethal and “less lethal” shot, as well as training and duty cartridges. Many law enforcement agencies and departments across the country turn to Rio for both training and on-duty ammunition.

    Good Stuff. I used it in my Asylum Weaponry (think Shockwave). Though as mentioned it is a bit longer then most 20 gauge buckshot, I was still able to fit 5 in the tube easily. Shot patterns at 12 yards were slightly tighter and with less flyers than either of my go to loads, the Remington #3 and the Federal PD #4. Pleasantly surprised at this. Shell construction was consistant and there were no failures to fire. I will be buying more.

    My Saiga 12 eats this stuff right up. 40 rounds in a single range session with not a single hiccup, and over 70 total without a cleaning in between.

    I have shot several hundred rounds of this ammunition through my Remington 870 and found the quality of Rio to be consistent and without flaws. I also noticed the shotgun doesn't seem to be as dirty after firing several rounds through it vs. other brands. I recommend both Rio and Ammunition To Go as both have been good additions to my shooting experiences!
