Hunting Cartridges

Hunting Cartridges

RIO’s BlueSteel Game Loads pack the lethal, non-lead punch needed for those tough wetland conditions. High velocities, perfectly spherical steel shot and multiple shot sizes give you the stopping power you need under adverse hunting conditions. Our Royal BlueSteel range, available in Magnum and Super Magnum case sizes, comes with blisteringly fast speeds up to 470 mps and provides great patterns and superb knockdown power combined with an eye-catching steel design.
RIO recently presented the first hydro soluble wad in the market. The company will incorporate this new component to its BlueSteel product line, taking a huge step forward towards reducing the impact of the shotshells in the environment.

Target Cartridges

Target Cartridges

The use of lead shot in target loads has been the most common shot choice due to its performance and cost, however there is a growing need for a non-lead target load for many wetland areas. RIO is one of the world’s leader’s in non-lead target loads with a full line of steel shot cartridges for those areas where lead is a concern. The Target Load BlueSteel in both 12 ga and 20 ga uses special wads and powders offer the same performance as the traditional lead shot.
