Details

Rio Ammunition, started all the way back in 1896 and as of June 2015 opened up a plant just down south in the town of Marshall, Texas after selling to the US market since 2002. They are dedicated to providing their ammunition products to the United States market, and are most known in Spain and Europe. They have plants in Spain, UK, and the USA and produce nearly 500 million shells a year!

This 20 gauge number 1 buck shot by Rio contains 9 lead pellets. It is a 2 ¾ inch shell with those 9 pellets traveling at 1,345 feet per second. These would be ideal for hunting or even self defense especially for someone not wanting to shoot a 12 gauge. Also #1 buck shot often provides great penetration, but tends not to penetrate too far causing unwanted damage.

As a general rule of thumb, shotgun pellets spread about 1 inch per yard (3 feet) after leaving the muzzle. It is also a great idea to take any given load you have and shoot it at different distances with your chosen shotgun to test and see how the load will perform at different distances. This will give you a great idea of how your shotgun and chosen round will perform when it is time to take the shot. If you want to be sure to have extra ammo to try this with and practice with, don't forget to check out the 250 round quantity of this ammo for a better price per round.

A: Yes, 00 buck is an excellent choice and one we would pick over #3 because it is larger in diameter, resulting in greater penetration. However, #3 buck is a great load in its own right. Both can be very effective if used properly.

A: Rio Royal ammunition has been produced in Spain since 1896 and sold throughout Europe. It is quality, tested ammunition, but is relatively unknown in the US market, and is thus priced competitively.

A: 20 Gauge ammo is used for home defense, clays, skeet, trap, upland game hunting, waterfowl hunting, among other things. It is ideal for those who do not want to or cannot deal with the heavier recoil of a 12 gauge shotgun.

A: This 20 gauge ammo does indeed feature 9 pellets of 00 buck due to a shot cup design that is unique to Rio Royal. The velocity is 1345fps, which is faster than some 12 gauge 9 pellet 00 buck loads.
