Default What Happened to Rio Shotgun Shells?

Been shooting and liking Rio 20 gauge 1 oz and 12 gauge 1 1/8 oz shells for several years but havenít seen any around in the last two years. Anybody know why they disappeared?

Nobel Sport Italia bought out Rio, to my understanding. It seems they will produce Rio there going forward unless they reopen the Texas factory.

That's a **** shame and explains why Academy no longer carries them. The 10z 7.5s were my goto. They are higher than a cat *** now!....


Have 3 cases left of the 1 oz 7.5s and I shot all Remington Shurshots this year for my dove hunts to save them....why I don't know but I did. I guess the 1 oz Shurshots will be my 20 gauge go to now.

I shot Shurshots for years until we started having the plastic separate from the brass when you shot. Switched to Rioís and been shooting them ever since. On my last box now so Shurshots it is I guess.

I shot them as well before Rios but Rios were a cheaper 1oz 20ga load alternative from Academy and I liked how they performed for $1-$1.50/ less a box. Never had your issues with the Shurshots and hope they got them fixed Ö. They did well the past three weeks

Speaking of Rio shells, if anybody has any 12ga hulls, I might be interested in them. 2-3/4 through 3.5". These will be for reloading. Prefer the blue hulls

. But will settle with what ya got.

Online may be your only solid choice. As always do your own research to verify the website is legit, but these came off ammoseek.com and they are, as far as I know, all good to go websites.

Plenty of Rio Steel around. Hard to find high brass in lead, plus it’s up to $15.99 a box. It’s almost getting cheaper to buy a BB gun and go around the neighborhood dove hunting and pay a fine if you get caught.����Just kidding

Anmoseek brings up a lot of Rio shells as well.

I just bought some ammo from BattleHawk the other week. Ordered on Sunday and it was delivered Thursday. So they are G2G.

I still have a few boxes of 12ga. I prefer Fiocchi shell over Rio. They just pattern better in my guns. Fiocchi are not cheap either.

Good to hear!

Sometimes going online is the best bet, might pay a little more but at least you have them now.
