Use it in officers semi annual shotgun training. Always performs as well as the high priced rounds..... Rio is a very deadly 00 buck round. I clean and service company shotguns, and I have found that Rio is also very clean. It is now our duty, carry ammo.

Great plinking and target ammo for the range. I'll shoot this alongside the Federal and Remington and its quite similar. Loads seems consistent too. I save the Federal for standby ammo but my 870 will eat this Rio up any day of the week! (Posted on 6/4/13)

This is the second time I have purchased this ammo and it performs great. Rio Buckshot is an unbuffered round and therefore there is a some deformation in the pellets as they are fired, but at the distances involved in CQB and Home Defense, you will not notice it in the spread. This is great training ammo for the price and the performance is there too for HD usage. Bulk Ammo is also UNMATCHED when it comes to shipping on-time and Customer Service. WTG Bulk Ammo, Keep up the good work! (Posted on 6/2/13)

No failure to feed or failure to extract problems at all with this ammo in my Winchester 1200 Police pump. It patterns well and and doesn't leave excessive residue behind. That and bulkammo's excellent customer service and pricing makes it a super deal. (Posted on 6/1/13)

I've bought from BulkAmmo.com several times and they've always been an excellent ammo dealer. Had a little delivery problem this time when my order went to someone else but BulkAmmo took care of things and I finially got my order. I understand BulkAmmo is doing their best to get a lot of orders out quickly and mistakes happen. This will not deter me from buying from them again. You can't beat their prices, the varity of available ammo or their determination to provide quality service. Thanks BulkAmmo! (Posted on 5/31/13)

Quality Ammunition
Review by NV Team Tactical
Reliable?
Ammo Performance
Bargain?
Our team shoots lots of high velocity buckshot. Rio Royal more than holds it's own compared to higher priced ammunition. Good paterns, no missfires, managable recoil. Excellent choice for home defense or hunting. Be aware that Rio Royal is slightly longer than standard 2 3/4 shotshells. This may cause occasional FTF (failure to feed) incidents in some semi-auto shotguns not chambered for 3" rounds. Otherwise, we've had no failures using Rio Royal. Reliable, hard hitting and affordable ammo. (Posted on 2/2/13)

Took 200 rounds to my in- laws property and put them thru my Bennelli M2 only had 2 misfires. Inspected the shells and the primer strike was hard out of curiosity I tried those 2 shells in my Remington 870 and still no fire. But 2 out of 200 for the price is not bad. Ill be buying more (Posted on 1/27/13)

MY ACP AMMO WORKED GREAT AND WAS A GREAT PRICE FOR THE QUAILITY. I DID HAVE ISSUES WITH THE 12GA BECAUSE IT SEEMS TO BE LONGER THE 2-3/4 BUT LESS THEN 3" IT KEPT JAMMING. I HAD MY SHOTGUN CHECKED AND NO ISSUES WITH IT WERE FOUND. I ALSO WISH TO COMMENT ABOUT THE COST FOR SHIPPING. I FEEL LIKE THIS WAS QUITE HIGH AND HOPE YOU CAN LOWER THAT COST. I WILL STILL BUY FROM BULKAMMO NOW THAT I HAVE ALREADY ORDERED AMMO AND HAPPY WITH IT ALL.. KEEP UP THE GREAT JOB..KEN:-) (Posted on 8/19/12)

works fine with tube feed (Smith tactical & express) and clip (Saiga 12). It will not work in a drum. It is too long and has a lip on it that catches on the ramp. Don't buy it if you want to use a drum feed. (Posted on 5/16/12)

I was shooting with my Saiga 12, I had to adjust my auto plug. Once I did, she was cycling like a champ. My only complain is the size! Slightly larger than 2 3/4, but not 3. So I wasn't able to use my 20rd drum, but fit perfectly in my 12 and 5 round mag. Beside the size, I will buy again! You can't beat this price. Next time I'm going to order with a couple of buddies so we could split shipping cost. Just a suggestion for anyone that gets discurrged due to the shipping price. (Posted on 5/9/12)

I ordered a 250 rd case of this ammo and it arrived a day earlier than scheduled which was much appreciated. I have ordered, two cases of 9mm S&B and not this case of Rio Royal 00 Buck and in all thress orders, Bulk Ammo was right on target with their delivery, no shipping damage and the performance quality of the product was terrific. If they could find a way to reduce their shipping costs, they would bury their competition with customer satisfaction. Great job guys. Keep up the good work! (Posted on 3/15/12)

I have a lot of this Buck Shot and I'm buying more. I have no doubt that zombies are intimidated by RIO Royal, but I'm worried about the more sophisticated predators.
1345 FPS, and high brass for this price is great, VIVA RIO. I have significant stock in one of the other brands also, but they use low brass on their Slug, and 00 buck loads, something I look at when shopping.
My 11-87 is picky on eating re-loads and factory #9, wont cycle them. Buck functions flawlessly in the 870, the Ithaca 37, the 11-87, and the Beretta AL390. It's important when having to stock and carry multiple selections of ammo.

stock up, you know it's the right thing to do. (Posted on 11/1/11)

Q: Lead or steel shot?

Posted On: 1/9/13 By: chris

A: Rio loads their 00 buckshot with lead shot. All components used are non corrosive.
Q: Would this work in my Saiga 12 it needs a lot of pressure to cycle the next round..

Posted On: 5/22/12 By: tim ellis

A: Yes, we just shot Rio Royal buck in a Saiga 12 a few days ago, it functioned perfectly.
Q: what is the country of origin for royal ammo?

Posted On: 10/22/11 By: Anonymous

A: Rio Royal shotgun ammunition is manufactured in Spain. The company has been in operation for over 100 years.
Q: Is this product suitable for home defence and what is the shelf life?

Posted On: 10/21/11 By: Trotty

A: This Rio Royal 00 Buck would be a great choice for home defense. Properly stored in a cool, dry place, this ammo should be reliable for decades.
Q: Do you offer further discount prices for larger quantities such as 1000 rounds of Royal Buck?

Posted On: 10/21/11 By: Mike

A: At this time, this is the lowest price we can offer on orders under $25,000. We are always striving to bring the best prices to our customers.
Q: I'm looking for a home defense round But I don't want over penetration threw walls or should I go with a bird shot round thank you

Posted On: 10/21/11 By: Kevin Sona

A: Any round that will quickly incapacitate a violent attacker will also have the ability to penetrate interior walls. 00 Buck is a good choice for home defense use.
Q: Thanks to the survival podcast network for leading me to your site. My question is I'm looking for a great home defense load but don't want to much over penetration so slugs are out should i go with the 00 Royal Buck shot or a small game load I don't want to be blowing threw walls thank you.

Posted On: 10/21/11 By: Kevin Sona

A: This 00 Buck ammo will still penetrate multiple interior walls, as will any ammo that is sufficient for home or self defense.
Q: How does this ammunition compare to the Winchester Ranger 12 guage buckshot ammunition?

Posted On: 10/5/11 By: Shawn

A: This Rio Royal 12ga buckshot is comparable in terms of velocity and number of projectiles to the Winchester Ranger 00 Buck ammo. It is also loaded by a Spanish company that has been in business for over 100 years.
Q: I am not familiar with this Rio Royal brand. (a) Where is it manufactured? (b) How does the recoil compare to the S&B 2 7/8" 12-pellet buck (my favorite 00 load for a long time)?

Posted On: 10/2/11 By: Jonathan

A: Rio Royal ammo is manufactured in Spain. S&B buckshot is great stuff, but this Rio Royal will probably recoil a little less because it has 9 pellets instead of 12 (although it does drive those 9 pellets to a higher velocity than the S&B). However, as you know, the S&B 00 buck load does not have a huge amount of recoil to begin with.
Q: Would this round be considered high brass or low brass? What is the difference?

Posted On: 9/29/11 By: Scott

A: These shells are high brass. Both low brass and high brass can be reloaded and have comparable strength. The difference is the amount of brass that makes up the side of the shell - low brass is about 3/8", while high brass is around 1/2" or more.
Q: I was wondering if you could tell me the storage life of this product? Thank you.

Posted On: 9/28/11 By: Farrell

A: This is highly dependent on how you store the ammo. Stored improperly, it could become useless overnight. Stored properly (in a cool, dry place away from heat sources and moisture), it could last for decades.
Q: Where are the ingredients from and were they made in usa?

Posted On: 9/28/11 By: Mike

A: Rio Royal ammo is loaded in Spain. The company has been in business for over 100 years.
