The possibilities for stationary targets to destroy using your shotgun are practically endless. At the grocery store you can stock up on water jugs and pop cans or head to the produce section and grab pumpkins and other gourds in the fall or watermelons and honeydews in the spring and summer. At home you can get creative and fill your old Santa decoration with holes before disposing of it – really, you can annihilate almost anything this way. Sure there are plenty of fantastic paper targets at the local gun store, but it’s so much more fun to blow away fruits and vegetables or watch water escape through a freshly perforated water jug.
Of course, if you’re going to spend time destroying stationary targets with your shotgun, you need a nice big box of ammunition, and that’s where Rio comes in. Rio has been in business since 1896, and with more than a century’s worth of experience producing ammunition they’ve been able to come up with more than a few new and innovative products. They also take quality control seriously, taking care to produce reliable ammunition, and the proof is in the ammo. You can hear the results of their efforts with each “bang.”
These Rio rounds are made for your 12-gauge shotgun. Each shotgun shell is filled with 21 pellets of #4 buckshot and measures 2 ¾” long. These rounds fly down-range at a muzzle velocity of 1345 feet per second and impact targets with destructive force. Although it’s a great deal of fun to use buckshot to ventilate water jugs and watermelons, it has other uses as well. In fact, #4 buckshot is frequently used for home defense due to its ability to create a devastating wound cavity at close range without over-penetrating walls like 00 buck is prone to do. It can also be used for hunting small and medium game. There are 250 rounds in this box, making it just right for all your needs. Rio manufactures ammunition at their factory outside Galdacano, Spain.

In self-defense the goal is to incapacitate your assailant as quickly as possible, which is why many gun owners choose to conceal carry large calibers. Although shot placement is important regardless of caliber, a larger caliber is going to create a bigger hole no matter what and given the effects of adrenaline on the human body it’s a good idea to have every possible factor in your favor. There are, of course, ways to train for the adrenaline dump, although it can’t be precisely replicated. Doing a series of jumping jacks, push-ups, and burpees immediately prior to shooting your gun raises your heartrate, accelerates breathing, and creating strain in the muscles, and if you do it enough it’s a good way to prepare for some of the physical effects of an attack. Even with training it’s nice to have a big gun, and that’s why you carry a .45 ACP.
These particular .45 ACP rounds are 185 grain, making them medium-weight for the cartridge size. At this weight these rounds are light enough to travel at fairly high speeds while still heavy enough to produce an impressive punch on impact. These are Jacketed Hollow Point (JHP) rounds and as such deliver rapid energy transfer and controlled expansion on impact, penetrating more deeply than standard HPs and creating a large, devastating wound cavity. Each of these rounds has a muzzle velocity of 830 foot-pounds. Aguila produces this ammunition specifically for self-defense use.
There are 50 defense rounds in this single box of ammunition. With 50 rounds you can keep your .45 ACP and spare mags loaded and ready in case of a self-defense scenario, but if you want to get realistic training in, you’ll need to order extra boxes. Because Aguila produces this ammunition in fresh brass cases with boxer primer, you can collect your spent brass, reload it, and get more range time in, making this an even better deal. Aguila manufactures ammunition at the TECNOS factory in Mexico according to SAAMI or CIP specifications. Place your order today to keep your .45 ACP ready for the worst-case scenario.
