Ammo Overview

Quantity - 250 rounds (5 rounds per box, 50 boxes per case)
Manufacturer - Rio
Load - 2-3/4" Low Recoil Slug


RIO’s long history of providing high quality shotgun shells to the consumer market means they understand a thing or two about adding value. The company, owned by the MAXAM group is among the largest producers of shotshells by volume in the world and the legacy of the company goes way back to Alfred Nobel (of Nobel Peace prize fame), who was the inventor of dynamite, and a thought leader and inventor in the firearms and ammunition fields. RIO is a high quality, low cost shotshell that offers a good value for the money and this rifled slug is proof of those statements.

The low recoil load is a 2 ¾” shell with a rifled slug in the cup that weighs 1 ounce (438 grains). This heavy slug is suitable for big game hunting, personal protection in an urban or rural environment or for target and range work. The lower felt recoil means faster follow up shots in a tactical or sport shooting scenario, and less strain or discomfort when long training sessions take place.

This is a 250 round case lot of ammunition that is packaged 5 rounds per box with a case lot being equal to the 50 boxes.

A: A 1oz slug from a 12 gauge at 1200fps is pretty powerful, reduced recoil or not.

A: Rifled slugs are intended to be fired from a smoothbore shotgun barrel, but are safe and fairly accurate through rifled barrels. No damage will result from either combination.

A: With proper sights and technique, these slugs will allow the shooter to take deer at 100 yards.

A: These shells are reloadable, however, you should know that Rio Royal primer pockets are slightly oversized, as they are made to European standards. You can still use American primers, but you'll get the best results with Rio brand primers. Also, the muzzle velocity for the Rio Royal 1oz low recoil slug is 1200fps.

A: Low recoil ammunition has either a reduced muzzle velocity or a reduced projectile mass. These 1oz slugs are slightly lighter and slower than the maximum of what a 12 gauge shotgun is capable of propelling, but are still very effective.

A: Using low recoil ammunition will help shooters of smaller stature manage larger firearms. However, some of the greatest increases in control will come from refining technique and stance.

A: No, the lead slugs used in this ammo will not wear out your barrel any faster than lead buckshot or lead birdshot.
