This shell’s no pantywaist. Its nine pellets of double-aught are primed to rip out of a shotgun barrel at a velocity of 1,345 fps. You’re going to notice the recoil – but you’re also going to notice that such a powerful barrage of 1/3” diameter shot pellets is going to have a big effect on any target. Rio’s lead is made plenty hard by the addition of antimony, and their pellets are as round as they need to be in order to pattern together tightly!
The Rio brand is owned by a Spanish explosives manufacturer which runs a high-tech production facility. There they receive reliable and non-corrosive primers, clean-burning powder, and rugged hulls that you’ll be able to reload more than once.
