    Maybe that’s the problem people are having with the gun not the shells.

    Killed 2 sprig today with Rios with my Stoeger M2000. 2 3/4 1 1/4 oz #3’s. A gun that has the worst reviews of any out there.

    No problems of ANY brand of shell through that gun either since I owned it new many years ago.

    Been using Rios since they came out both lead low base and steel. No issues between my dad, son and me.

    Honestly a pump will shoot anything with a live primer that you can jack into the chamber. Autos are a different story, pumps are like a double they will shoot anything that you can fit in the chamber

    True.

    Never had a misfire, shell hang up, wad stick, not eject or not chamber from base being oversized into any gun I use them
    In or my sons or dads. They fire every time and have not had issues with powder of find my guns any dirtier on the inside after shooting them.

    That’s my take on Rios and will shoot them without a second thought. They go bang and it’s up to me to hit the bird.

    Not always the case. I’ve shot my Rios out of my stoeger m3500. Couple thousand rounds, and also my beretta a350 about 500 rounds now. Also a maxus and sx3. All semi automatic shotguns and never have had a problem. Even hunting in rain, freezing tematures, and dropping the gun in the water. I have never had a problem with jamming misfires. Nothing. And I’ve never had a dirtier gun. Gas powered guns or not. Rio is my go to.

    You missed the point of a pump or double shooting anything that it can digest, there was no slam on Rio or any mention of Rio shells being unworthy

    Yup it is. Pulled it cause I thought the ducks might be flaring from it.

    Cheaper than the teal one by $40.00 and the same size.
