The most versatile firearms are shotguns, hands down. They are not perfect in all situations, or even great at any one particular scenario, but they are really good at doing a whole host of different things adequately. The best part? They do a bunch of things pretty well and a lot cheaper than any other firearm. Why are they so versatile? A few reasons, but mostly it boils down to diversity of ammunition which translates directly to diversity of utility.
Rio is not yet a household name in the ammunition industry, but it is nowhere near new to the scene. In fact, it has been around since before the turn of the 20th century having been owned by Alfred Nobel. It has been operating in the U.S. since 2002 with all manufacturing taking place in Marshall, Texas.
#4 buckshot is a good, solid option to cover a wide spectrum of missions. While perfectly suitable for deer in short-range situations, it is also very well suited for taking shots at hogs, mountain lions, and predators of the two-legged variety.
The 2 ¾” shells take the power down to a more manageable level because, let’s face it, targets weighing under 500 pounds generally down require that much juice to bring down. It is just unnecessary punishment for the shooter, which translates to slower follow-ups. When engaging dangerous game, follow-ups are important.
Are you still on the fence about trying out the Rio 2 ¾” #4 shot shells? Buy a box or two today and see what you think. It is very affordable so you’re not out much if it isn’t a great fit (but we’re pretty sure it will be).
