RIO In The News

You may find it hard to believe but it used to be that many folks had never heard of RIO Ammunition. During that time we liked to think of ourselves as the largest shotshell company you've never heard of.

All of that, however, has changed. Over the past few years, RIO has made significant advances in its domestic manufacturing and has partnered with the biggest names in the industry to make sure that you have access to the RIO brand no matter where you live or shoot.

The opening of RIO’s new state-of-the art 105,000 sq. ft. North American plant located in Marshall, Texas was covered in many national and international media.
