Rio shotshells - new bismuth

Postby gride830 » Wed Oct 30, 2013 7:37 pm

I've shot rio steel at snows and I was impressed for a cheap steel load. I like it better than kent steel. I was wondering what everyone thinks of rio bismuth. It's only about $25 for a box of 10 which is still expensive but cheaper than most non toxic heavy metals.

No clue, but I did see this the other day.. might be of use to you if you are looking to shoot bismuth. Seems to be a good price!

Why do I shoot 3.5" for geese? Because they don't make a 4" yet!

I saw some Rio Bismuth 3" 1 1/4 ounce #4 at Academy today priced $21 for 10 shells. Haven't used them, don't plan to.

Just use Winchester X-pert "welding slag" shot shells. A lot cheaper and just as good.
