The clean-burning powder in this shell is low-recoil so you don't have to worry about difficult target re-acquisition (if needed of course).
Rio is manufactured in Spain and has become more and more widely available in the U.S. market in recent months and years.

magazine, for example, you will only have room for 4 rounds. ( 2) Out of a dozen rounds or so fired through my pump 3 ejections hung up but were easily removed manually. I suspect one must eject very briskly in order to avoid this issue. I know of no US ammo that has such a lip. Also the Rio does not hold as tight a pattern as the Federal Tactical, low recoil, 8 pellet I now choose to us for home defense. Will use the Rio for target loads where time and consistent reliability are not required as in a tactical situation or home defense. The low recoil (1200 fps) is quite manageable. Otherwise this is very good ammo. (Posted on 10/18/13)
