Trap shooting has been going on since the end of the 18th century. When the sport was new, real birds were put either under a hat or in a trap of some sort and released to be shot, a practice that ended sometime during the Civil War, when artificial birds began to be used. By the end of the 19th century glass balls were being used, which quickly changed to clay targets like what’s used today. The sport is shot as either single or double presentation, which refers to how many targets are launched at a time. Most shooters use the 12-gauge shotgun to participate, and many use #9 shot just like you get with these Rio shells.
Rio Ammunition, which is a subsidiary of MAXAM, can trace its roots back to 1896. MAXAM is considered to be a frontrunner in the world of explosive ordnance and distributes their products to the military, law enforcement, and civilian markets. Although they’re headquartered in Bilbao, Spain, they also have a plant in Tennessee for the assembly of ammunition for the U.S. market. The hunting and sport market has become their specialty, in fact, over the last decade they’ve produced an average of 500 million shot shells each year. They’re on the cutting edge of the market and have are dedicated to producing quality ammunition at competitive prices.
If you’re a trap shooter – or skeet, or sporting clays – these shells are just what you need. These are 2 ¾” in length and have a 1 ounce load which is widely used by sport shooters because it has the necessary power to shatter targets without the more massive kick of a 1 1/8 ounce load. #9 shot is one of the standard sizes for the industry. This ammunition has a 3’ velocity of 1,210 feet per second. You get 250 shells when you place your order, and that’s a good amount for getting some focused practice in. Whether you’re new to sport shooting or a seasoned competitor, you need affordable shells. Get your order in to hone your skills for the next event.
