Comments

Steve Drier ( Fri, 14 Dec 2012 16:37:29 +0000 ) : I have a Mosseburg 500 pump loader. Have never had a problem loading shells until now. They are not 2 3/4" shells. When they go bang they work fine, but only after ejecting 2 out of five shells. Never had a problem with Federal and still don't after shooting the Rio Royal! Would not consider buying again. I can't complain about Lucky Gunner, they didn't make the shells.
Heidi At Lucky Gunner ( Mon, 17 Dec 2012 13:55:30 +0000 ) : Remember, 2-3/4" is the maximum length of case + hull after the shell has been fired, and both the fired and unfired length from brand to brand can vary quite a bit depending upon how the shell was loaded and crimped. The brass case portion of the Rio Royal shell is longer than many other brands and I wonder if that is contributing. Do you have a feel for how many total rounds the spring in your shell tube has handled?
Steve Drier ( Tue, 25 Dec 2012 09:10:41 +0000 ) : I hate to admit this but my friend just bought a brand new Mossy 500 and I gave him some of the Royal shells and they worked flawlessly. I guess I'll have to stip my gun and check the firing pin. Will let you know how it works out. The loading and ejecting was never a problem even though they were longer than advertised.
Tim Sarver Sr. ( Tue, 15 Jan 2013 15:35:52 +0000 ) : all these comments are auto or pump wounder how they would work in a side by side.
Tim Sarver Sr. ( Tue, 19 Mar 2013 16:58:53 +0000 ) : these are great .... lettum come i'll be ready...
Bill Huffman ( Thu, 12 Dec 2013 22:08:19 +0000 ) : Very impressed with the function, consistency and patterns. My Mossy 500 just gobbles them up! This is my new #1 'GO-TO' 00B. Fires over 100 rds with 0 FTF/FTE. This is the kind of reliability I look for in ammunition. Thanks, RIO!

Q: I presently have a Saiga-12, with 10 rnd. stick Pro-Mags and 20 rnd. drum Pro-mags. Has anyone had experience with this brand of ammo in those weapons with those mags? I have heard rumors that the ammo works well with the 10 rnd. stick mags, but is inconsistant with the 20 rnd. drum mags. Thanks! Any info would be breatly appreciated!

Posted On: 2/1/13 By: John

A: This will depend on a few combinations; the type of ammo, the drum/ magazine and how the shooter reacts to the recoil. The larger drums have been known to have a round hang up to prevent round advancement depending on the overall length of the round. While we have not experienced this, perhaps others will be able to post a review of this below on our review section. I have found it is usually a game of trial and error with larger magazines. To know how your ammo and magazine will perform, I would try a few different brands, fill the magazine to full capacity and see which rounds perform better than others. Some shooters will stretch the springs on their magazines to improve feeding.

good patterns Review by Fwank
Performance
Value
Quality
Out of a cylinder bored, 3" chamber, 18" Remington 870 HD/"riot" configuration barrel, this ammo gives surprisingly good patterns, given that it's made without the usual shot cup.

7 yards: all nine pellets in 5"-6"
10 yards: all nine pellets in 7"-8"
15 yards: all nine pellets in 10"-12"

Now, I did not try loading these in an extended magazine shotgun, nor did I measure the length of the hulls. Others have noted that these shells may be longer than standard US manufactured 2 3/4" shotgun shells and this may lead to reliability problems, especially with semiauto shotguns, and may lead to lower magazine capacity than expected, especially with extended magazine tubes. My shotgun was advertised as a 4+1 riot configuration shotgun, and that's what it holds, whether I use 2 3/4" shells or 3" shells.

I was pleasantly surprised by the uniformity and density of the patterns at typical home defense distances, given that, as I said, these shells don't even have shot cups, buffer material, or plated pellets, just plain old 19th Century style soft lead pellets stacked up inside the hull without a shotcup, 19th Century style. There was no excessive smoke, at least not compared to any other shotgun ammo anyone was trying that day. All the rounds fed, fired, extracted, and ejected from my nearly-new 870 with zero functional problems of any kind.

Recoil was very stout, as you would expect from full-power 12 gauge buckshot. Even with a Limbsaver pad, this stuff hurts on both ends. Fortunately it hurts a lot more on the receiving end than the giving end.

For those of you who hunt whitetail deer in states where buckshot is permitted in shotguns for big game hunting, you might also give these a try, but of course you'd want to do pattern testing out to 25 yards and beyond and perhaps try different chokes, if your hunting shotgun has interchangeable chokes. I believe the old hunter's rule for #00 buckshot is that 3 rounds in an 8" circle are needed for consistent lethality on whitetail deer at a given distance. (Posted on 11/8/13)
Wish they were really 2 3/4" as advertised. Review by John

I bought a full case of these. None of them are 2 3/4 as marked. Every other brand of 2 3/4 shell I have tried, works in my Mossberg 930 SPX. 7 in the tube and one in the chamber, can only get 6 of these in the tube. They are closer to 3" in shells. (Posted on 4/11/13)
Buckshot hunters, shell length and pellet size Review by Southerner
Quality
Performance
Value
Buckshot hunters can choose this no shotcup, no buffer, ammo to open their patterns in ultra-thick cover.

Be aware some 2 3/4" chambered 12 gauge shotguns (such as the older Winchester 1200 series) will not function with standard length roll crimped shot shells. SAAMI Voluntary Industry standards list 2.405" as the maximum length for Fold Crimp and 2.450 for Roll Crimped shotshells.

Rio Royal 00B pellets measure .34" diameter. Some other brand 00B rounds use pellets as small as .315 " SAAMI Voluntary Standard is .330" + or - .015" (Posted on 3/21/13)

Tried these through an 18" Remington 870, cylinder bore.

Got 6" patterns at 7 yards, 8" patterns at 10 yards, and 12" patterns at 15 yards. That's better than I expected for cheap buckshot.

Also, no failures to feed, cycle, extract, eject, or fire. (Posted on 12/9/12)

Not 2-3/4" Review by Lunareclipse02
Performance
Value
Quality
My Remington 1100 wont cycle these shells properly. The major reason is because it is longer than a standard 2.75" shell. I suggest to not buy these shells. For the money they are a good deal for a pump but for an autoloader which is chambered 2.75" it is not a good deal for you. They do not crimp their shells properly. So now I have many shells I cant use. (Posted on 9/6/12)

Not exactly 2 3/4 Review by Vinnie
Performance

I'm supposed to be able to put 7 rounds in my Mossberg 930SPX. I can get only 6. Comparing these to the Federal I have, these should really be considered 3" and not 2 3/4. Keep that in mind when purchasing.
Otherwise, I think they're good. (Posted on 3/17/12)

Both my 870 and my friends Saiga 12 seem to like it. Good pattern out of each, no failures to feed & fire, and the price was great. Cycled the Saiga 12 without failure. I will gladly buy more Rio Royal buckshot, when available. (Posted on 12/21/11)

May not pattern as well as some of the big brands,but I was completely satisfied with this ammo thus far. This was my first purchase from LGC, and as others note excellent service. Also knowing what you want is in stock is a BIG +. (Posted on 2/10/11)
Good, Hot Round! Review by DaveEagle

Works great. Muzzle velocity is a little faster that some off-the-shelf ammo. Simple physics tells you that translates into a little more recoil. Do-able if you've shot regular ammo before. Felt recoil more noticable if you've been using Low Recoil or Managed Recoil type ammo. Overall, great value for EXPECTED use. (Posted on 9/15/10)

I took some to the gun range yesterday. They have a slight kick so if you're not comfortable with a 12 gauge yet I would practice with somethin else first. But if you are an experienced 12 gauge shooter...I'm sure they will bring down whatever you hit! I bought mine for home defense...and after looking at the holes in my target...I'd hate to get hit with one of these! (Posted on 7/9/10)
