A: Hello! Unfortunately most manufacturers no longer list the dram as a type of measurement for the shell. Most manufacturers will simply use the shot weight and the velocity. The velocity of this ammunition is 1345 fps. Thank you, Joe

A: Rio's 00 Buckshot is loaded with a lead shot. All components loaded in this round are non corrosive. This round will work for 12Ga shotgun chokes of any size.

A: Yes. One thing to note is that the Rio Royal primer pockets are approximately 2 thousandths of an inch larger than American standard primer pockets. American primers will be a little large, but the Rio-manufactured primers will work quite well.

A: Either one is a good choice for home defense, with the low recoil loads being easier to control. However, both will penetrate multiple interior walls if they do not first hit the body of a bad guy. Shot placement is paramount in a home defense situation.

A: This ammo is low recoil because it is loaded to lower velocities and/or has lower projectile mass. It will still penetrate multiple interior walls, but less so than the standard Rio Royal 00 buck ammo.

A: Gas-operated shotguns are a little more forgiving when it comes to low recoil loads than recoil-operated shotguns, but you might want to try a smaller amount before buying this 12ga ammo in bulk.

A: 12 Gauge 00 Buckshot is one of the best loads for home defense. Slugs may also be appropriate, depending on your living situation and home construction.

A: There are different lengths of 12ga cases. Your Mossberg most likely has a 3" chamber, meaning that it can fire 2 3/4" and 3" shells. There are also 3 1/2" chambers and shells, and it is also possible to find 2 3/4" only guns. However, 2 3/4" will work in all pump action 12ga shotguns with at least a 2 3/4" chamber.

A: If you are properly storing your rifle and pistol ammo (in a cool, dry place), you can keep this shotgun ammo in the same location and expect good long-term storage properties.

A: Low recoil ammo is manufactured by either reducing the mass or velocity of the projectile(s) - or both. Different methods are used by different manufacturers.

A: This Rio Royal ammunition will function when fired through a rifled barrel, but all types of buckshot will have extremely large patterns when fired from such barrels.

A: Even in a low recoil load, the terminal performance of 12ga 00 buck shot is devastating and overwhelming.
