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.
