12 Gauge, RIO Top Sporting, 2 3/4", #12 Lead Shot, 1 Ounce, 25 Round Box.

Rio ammunition is a high quality Sporting Ammunition made in Spain. #12 Shot with 3300 pellets per 1 ounce load yields extremely dense patterns and is a favorite for varmint and pest control in urban areas at short ranges. Due to the light weight of the individual pellets, these loads do not carry long range but are very deadly at close range. Perfect for use in snake country.

Non-returnable item.
Muzzle velocity: 1280 fps.
3 Dram equivalent load.
Uses: Small Game Birds, Pest Control, Skeet.

"THE PELLETS IN THIS SHELL ARE SO TINY THAT THEY WILL NOT BREAK THE CLAY UNLESS ITS 15 YARDS OR CLOSER. IF THE TARGET IS ANY FARTHER, YOU CAN SEE THE ORANGE DUST FLY OFF THE TARGET, BUT THE TARGET WILL NOT BREAK. THIS HAS GOT TO BE THE MOST MISLEADING AND WORST TARGET SHELL EVER."

"Although one may be mislead by the picture on the box, Its just a picture of a clay target. Someone purchasing these should know that #12 shot is NO good for skeet/clays. Description is right on though...use for snakes, close range or knocking rust off something. They are NOT meant for clays or sporting, but I didnt purchase them for that anyway. Nothing wrong with them if you know what you are buying."

"Live in an apartment like me? Worried about sleeping wife and children, or even neighbors (living beside, above and below) because of your powerful pistol's penetrating capability? Well, these 12 shot shell's pellets are so small that it's practically a door breaching round. A pellet/shot that is so fine that it's almost powder and will not penetrate the wall...excellent for close up. The spray is so concentrated it essentially will disintegrate your target at close range....but not blow through the wall into your neighbor's connected apartment or duplex."

"I tried this at 25 yards and it was like shooting sand out of the end of my shotgun."

"I first ordered these in both 12ga and 410 a year or so ago to shoot starlings and English sparrows on my property. They work great for close range (under 25 or so yards maximum) on both species. The 12ga are my favorite since they produce a very large and dense pattern from my improved cylinder Browning Auto-5 from about 15-25 yards. It is almost impossible to miss, and the very small #12 size pellets have such a short maximum range that I do not need to worry about doing damage to anything on neighbors property more than 100 yards away. They feed just fine in my Browning too and have very light recoil.I spend a lot feeding native birds, but have no desire to feed starlings and English sparrows. With a little care I have been able to eliminate many, many non-native pests and have had fun doing it! Also, the 410's work OK, but in my full choke 410 I find I miss every now and then. They also cost more than the 12 ga."

"I agree with some, these are not target rounds and should have a picture of a snake or bird and not a clay on the box. I just got mine last night and have only shot three threw my 1500XTR winchester. It is has the full choke tube in place and I would emagine the gun you shoot them out of will have a LOT to do with how they work for you. I found them to be awsome at close range and even at 30 yards out of My gun, covered about 3/4ths of a feed sack with an excellent pattern. Would be hard for a mouse to get threw it anywhere. At 15 I got one big hole! With about a six inch pattern around it. Be smart enough to know what your buying and what for. If it's birds or snakes, or just fun, go for it. Probably not to good for elephant or moose, or skeet, unless your very fast on the trigger. I was happy with what I saw so far anyway. I would buy more of these."

"I use these out of my Remington 12 gauge. I get home from work and toss a 4 or 5 clays in the air and blast them to dust. Great for relieving everyday stress without worrying about hitting the neighbors. Yes, they don't work as well over 30 ft. or so, however for my particular application, compared with #9 shot, I found the #12 shot to be as good and sometime better.Just bought 10 boxes."

"I bought a couple of boxes of these a while back. Unbelievable patterns up close, 15 yards or so you could probably shoot flies out of the air. If you needed a self defense load for up close and personal distances, and you really wanted to dish out some non-lethal punishment, this load would certainly fill the bill, although anyone shot with one of these would probably be getting lead picked out of them for the rest of their life."

"I shoot these in USPSA and multi-gun matches, they like to set stationary clays, many times inside 10 yards, and these #12's spead out much faster than anything I've used before, so I can go faster. Also help on the flippers (clays thrown up with a popper) that are lots of times very close."

"A while back, I bought a few boxes for clay target shooting. I use a Benelli semi-auto. I've come to prefer shooting hand tossed clays as opposed to those coming out of a thrower. These shells functioned flawlessly. Not a single cycling problem regardless of rapid fire. Most of the clays are within 30 to 40 yards. I use an IC Skeet choke. I read some of the more critical reviews. I don't disagree, or doubt their truth. I think one needs to keep in mind what they're buying. #12 shot is incredibly small. You wouldn't use such a small size unless your target was close. I wouldn't use these for shooting clays out of a thrower. I agree with the one reviewer who commented that you would need \"a quick trigger finger,\" in that instance. If there is a negative to mention, it would simply be that I didn't find the hulls suitable for reloading."
