Dallas, Texas, July 13 - RIO Ammunition is sponsoring the ISSF World Cup shooting range in Tucson, Arizona. With this sponsorship RIO Ammunition, based in Dallas, Texas, further strengthens its commitment to sports shooting, a sector in which the brand is a reference since being founded more than 120 years ago.

RIO is sponsoring range number 2 and is a supplier of the training shotshells for shooters during the competition. To mark this special occasion RIO has released a limited edition of their emblematic Star Team Evo cartridge with "World Cup 2018" engraved in the hull. These special shotshells have been loaded at the company's Marshall, Texas, factory which is one of the most advanced in the world and the only non-metallic ammunition factory in the state. In addition, the company will have a VIP area inside the shooting range for all their shooters, collaborators and clients.

This World Cup will also see the debut in the International RIO Team of Antonio Bailón who is currently 10th in the International Shooting Sport Federation’s (ISSF) ranking. Antonio joins the other Spaniard Alberto Fernández, who holds 7th position in the ranking, and between them they have 16 medals in ISSF World Cups and World Championships.

"At RIO we are proud to continue to support shooters and hunters from all over the world as we have been doing for more than 120 years. This sponsorship is another example of our commitment to this sport and to the US market. During the next few days the best international shooters will be able to test the performance of these specially-loaded cartridges from our Marshall factory and for those of us at RIO it makes us proud to do what we do.", explains Eduardo Baeza, RIO’s Director in the US.
