I have purchased 6 cases of the ammo in the last year in both 12 and 20 ga. and shot quite a bit of it. I have fired it through both a Remington 870 and 887 and a Winchester 1300 all with no performance problems at all. This is also a very clean burning ammo and if you like to reload the hulls are really nice too. (Posted on 2/12/14)

Did exactly what was advertised and said in reviews, only fired 40 rounds or so, so far expect the rest to be just as flawless, nice pattern at 30' (indoor range max). (Posted on 8/31/12)
Very Satisfactory. Wider than normal shot dispersal.

I recently attended a 2-day shooting course where I had to shoot a LOT of buckshot. These low recoil rounds saved my shoulder. They have about the same recoil as target loads of bird shot. They were 100% reliable and reasonably clean. My only complaint was that they had quite a wide shot pattern from my 870 Tactical. (Posted on 5/24/12)

The ammo shot good for the most part. When they say low recoil they mean it! The only problem is that the low recoil actually interfered with the cyclIng action of my benelli M4 about two times out of 50 rounds. For those who don't know an M4 is a semi auto shotgun that needs the recoil from the round to cycle. Still not a bad ratio though. Overall good ammo. (Posted on 12/31/11)

I purchased 500 rounds of this stuff and shot close to 100 of it already. It's no dirtier than any other ammo and has fired every time. I even sell an occasional box of 5 for $4 and people are very pleased to get it. I like the shells being clear also, helps in showing people that are unfamiliar with 00 buck exactly what's inside and why it's a great defense round. And another thing it fires out of my Saiga 12 just fine and love the high brass. Just can't see a reason to pay $6 to $10 for ammo that does the same thing this does. (Posted on 9/11/11)

Q: Is this a lead load or a lead free load, I need a lead load for my choke. Thank you

Posted On: 1/25/13 By: Josh

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.
Q: Are the Rio Royal shells reloadable?

Posted On: 10/22/11 By: Craig

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.
Q: I'm looking for a home defense round. would this round be better for this then the standard royal buck round that travels at 1345 F.P.S or do you recommend bird shot I want knock down power I just don't want pellets blasting threw walls we have to small children thank you

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

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.
Q: my question is I'm looking for a good home defense Ammo does the lower recoil shell penetrate less? and does it have less gun powder then the standard load and that's why it has less recoil? thank you

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

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.
Q: Is this a good choice for a gas-operated shotgun? Or should I go with the standard loads? Thanks!

Posted On: 10/18/11 By: Jason

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.
Q: Would you consider 00 Buckshot the best 12ga ammo you offer for home defense?

Posted On: 10/18/11 By: David Placek

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.
Q: I bought my first gun not to long ago. I have not shot it or bought amomo for it yet. Will any 12 ga ammo fit in a mosburg 12 ga pump shot gun? Does it have to be a certain size?

Posted On: 10/11/11 By: jayson

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.
Q: if I'm planning to use this Royal Buck for long term storage - Can it be held with the rest of my .223 and 9mm brass or does it need to be kept in a special environment? thanks J

Posted On: 10/11/11 By: Jay

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.
Q: What constitutes 'low recoil' and how is this achieved? is the labeling consistent between manufacturers?

Posted On: 10/9/11 By: david

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.
Q: I shoot an Ithaca Model 37 with a 20" rifled barrel. Will there be any problems using this ammo?

Posted On: 10/8/11 By: Bud

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.
Q: Hello, The low recoil does not affect the stopping power? Thanks

Posted On: 9/27/11 By: Anonymous

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