"Great price, but really kick. I shot about 20 rounds and wanted to stop cause I thought they were going to break my gun, lol."

"These are great shells. I shot over 150 and bought another case. The reason I did not give this 5 bullets was because the shell is a bit longer than a standard 2-3/4\". At first, I thought my spring got tangled in the loading tube when I could not get 7 rounds in. I took my shotgun apart (Mossberg 930 SPX), checked the spring, put in back together, loaded with Super X shells, and all 7 rounds loaded. Went to the range and started loading these rounds and...what? Only 6 rounds went in. I didn't even realize they where longer until I compared them both. Otherwise, great ammo, I still will continue to buy this."

"Wow! This stuff kicks like a mule. IT WILL BLOW A 4X4 IN TWO AT 20ft. Shoots great through my Winchester pump. No problems with this ammo at all! Great price. Comes in 5 round boxes. What a deal. This is a must buy!"

"This ammo is perfect for a Saiga 12. The extra length of shell actually helps with feeding."

"My first time ordering from this site, and it was great. Ordered the ammo late one evening and received it two days later. The ammo was boxed and shipped without damage. I compared the length of the shotgun shells to some target low brass 2-3/4\" stuff I had, and they are slightly longer, but are shorter than the 3\". Read some other reviews on other web sites and have read nothing but good things about them. I would have given it 5 bullets, but I have not shot any of them yet. The manufacturer's website say's they have been in business for a hundred years or something like that. Hope this helps others who are trying to decide to purchase."

"I just received my case of 00 Rio Royal. Haven't fired any yet. Because of past reviews that told of the over length of the shells, I knew I would be taking a chance. One reviewer stated that he didn't have a problem loading his Saiga 12 gauge. I did. They won't fit in the magazine or the drum. I haven't tried them in my pump yet. I don't see any problem there except a reduction in the number of rounds it will hold. I've been considering the purchase of a 12 gauge Coach Gun. I might just keep them exclusively for that. Don't know if I'd make another purchase. I think I'll stick to the more popular, American brands. They cost more, but I never have had a problem with them."

"These ARE indeed 2-3/4\" shells. You CANNOT use other supposed 2-3/4\" shells as a measurement reference. Grab your tape measure and go measure a 2-3/4\" Remington Express 00 buck shell and you'll see the Remington is actually 2-1/2\" and NOT 2-3/4\" as advertised. Rio has accurately advertised their product as 2-3/4\" and they are the only ones I know who provide real and accurate measurements. Remington and Winchester both are shorter than advertised. They are NOT 3\" shells as many of the reviews below say. As far as patterning, these are on par with Remington Express 00 buck. From 20 yds with a Mossberg 500 18.5\" ported barrel, the Rios put all 9 rounds in a 10\" circle. Great buy! Don't hesitate and don't be fooled by the competition."

"After receiving these, I inspected them, and everything is in order. Can't wait to try them out. Part of my long term storage, protection, and survival gear solution. You get 4 bullets so far, as I have not shot any yet. Otherwise, 5 bullet. I hear they kick a little. lol"

"Just bought a case of this ammo from CTD and fired about 50 rounds of it through my Benelli M1 Super 90. It cycled my shotgun flawlessly and had a great, tight pattern at 25 yards. This ammo is definitely worth the price! FYI: not for those who are sensitive to a strong recoil, as this ammo delivers a pretty good kick."

"My Saiga-12 loves this stuff! It kicks like a mule, but adding a low kick stock now lets me shoot comfortably all day.As others have stated, these rounds are a little long. They are too long to fit in my MD Arms 20 round drums. They fit and feed flawlessly from my 3\" SGM stick mags and from the Izhmash mag that came with the Saiga.Can't beat the price! Get you some!"

"Does not cycle at all in my Remington 887. Gets hung up and won't eject. Other brands work fine. I believe the problem stems from the large brass base on the shell. If you buy these rounds, good luck."

"Cycled well in my Saiga 12 after a minor adjustment to the gas setting. Will be buying another case before the price goes up even more!"

"Compared 5 shots to 5 shots vs Remington 00 buck and really hung in there. With my 5 shots the grouping was 11 inches at its most furthermost holes on 2 out of the 5, and around 9 1/2 on the rest. With Remington 3 where very well grouped 9 inches and the other 2 was 12 inch apart in almost a straight line. For the price difference these are great to have. Shot from a Mossberg 500 18 1/2 barrel cylinder bore."

"I ordered a case of these and have not had one problem....Have fired them in a mossberg 500, remington 870, and a winchester wingmaster..not one single problem from either gun!! seem to be feeding flawlessly and are very dependable. Goes bang every single time!!! Great for the price and availability. about to buy another case to keep around the house."

"When you buy 2 3/4 inch rounds it's supposed to be 2 3/4\" after the shell is opened. I have a case of these RIO Royal Buckshot and they are great rounds. They clobber all the targets we shoot. But I can fit 8 rounds of this Federal 2 3/4\" birdshot into my shotgun and only 7 shots of this RIO Royal Buckshot. That is because the shell length BEFORE the RIO is fired is longer than the Federal. I believe after they have both been fired they are 2 3/4\". But the difference is, because of the pre-fired shell length, you can load one less shot in my shotgun. Either way, I bought a case of these for a fair price and have plenty of hand for the range when I need them. Hope this clears the air up about how many will fit in your chamber and why. For whatever reason, the shell is a bit longer before it's fired than most shells. I think it's the plastic covers they use over the buckshot."

"I have shot the RIO buckshot in 00 and 4 size. Both feed, shoot and group great. Feeds reliably in my 12 ga pumps and my Beretta 1201 semi auto. Pumpkins and watermelons explode at 25 yards with these!Can't beat the price either."

"I was a bit concerned these would not cycle thru my saiga 12 but figured if they didn't I could run them in my old model 12 pump. I ran a clip thru the saiga (not a drum) and had no failures. I'm pleased with them but have not taken the time yet to see what kind of pattern they produce. The price is great and I doubt you could find them cheaper ANYWHERE. The shipping was reasonable and as always CTD does a great job all around.I don't see how you can go wrong with these, especially at this \"stock up \" price."

"Seeing as how this cycles my Saiga 12 that's very picky quite reliably, I gave it 5 stars. It also works great in a Mossberg 500, but what doesn't? Recoil is very manageable as well!"

"Great stuff for the price. I used it with VEPR 12 MOLOT mags, which can use 'longer' rounds no problem. My pump-action also cycled them fine, but with 1 less round in the tube. Overall, I was very happy and will order more !"

"Ran the rounds through my Remington 870 express and my Mossberg 590A1. No issues. Good groups out to 30 yards for me. Recoil was normal. Don't know why everyone is complaining about it."

"Compared to the Federal 00 buck I have put through my Mossberg 500 no distinct difference. Low smoke and residue found during cleaning. I would certainly get these again. Great 12 ga. shell."

"I'm using this ammo in an older 870 Remington Wingmaster chambered for 2-3/4\" shells with an 18\" barrel. I've gone through about 70 rounds so far with no failures to fire or any feed problems. Highly recommend and will purchase again."

"I bought a case of this, it comes in 5 rd. boxes. As one review stated it does look really \"cool\". I used it in my Vepr 12 with 0 issues, yet my Vepr eats the bulk Wal-Mart so I was not surprised. The groups of the 9 pellets was fairly good considering the price, I would match it with the Winchester Ranger series for grouping, so not the best but works great for my needs. I am interested in trying to get some of the Spartan buck which shows a little cheaper, yet I bet this wins in the looks appeal as so many people can see your un-shot ammo, lol."

"I bought this to ammo to break in my new MKA-1919-XN. It worked great for that purpose and loosened up the action pretty good after about 75 rounds, only problem was that after firing 7 rounds out of the 10 round box mag, round #8 would not feed due to the curvature of the mag and the actual length of the RIO shell which was closer to 3\". My Remington 870 magnum with a 10 round mag had no problem with feeding or firing. Great ammo for the price!"
