If I didn't love my job I might apply. Any of you Shotgunners ever use their products?

Good ammo! We use a lot of it during dove season and I see a lot of the Sporting clay Shooters using it.

Word from dealers and distributors is that Rio will launch a new line of reloading gear in the US in '15 - Maxam powder will flow to the U.S. according to the sources.

Good news all around!

Job created, more ammo supply and the more ammo out there, the more competative the pricing is.


It's a win-win situation.

It is good ammo. I use it when shooting trap doubles. Rio had a plant in McEwen, TN that had a fire and explosion in April of last year. One dead three injured. I never heard if they were rebuilding that plant or relocating.

That is good news!

I have heard mixed reviews on the RIO line, especially their buckshot rounds. Some say they are not 100% reliable. I have no experience with them personally, but I certainly have no problem giving them a try!

Yep, I use a lot of Rio for skeet and trap.

Funny you should mention 22s. I was in Wal-Mart yesterday looking at ammo and a guy started talking about 22s and the lack thereof. He told me about a place in the industrial park where Rio is that is making it. I was searching for that when I found this. Maybe it's the same company, but I couldn't find anything about it.

I hadn't heard that but their new factory isn't too far from me. I suppose that I should start supporting the local economy.
