    I was at a sporting clays shoot on Saturday with a squad of guys, several of which were shooting Rio's. One of the guys had a Rio load come apart when fired. No noticeable noisy difference, but when he ejected the hulls, only the brass came out and you could see the rest of the hull stuck about 2 inches down the barrel. The base wad stayed with the hull in the barrel.

    I have no beef with Rio's, just passing this along to other shooters, keep an eye on what comes out.

    I have seen this happen with just about every hull. New reloaded doesn't matter. It happens occasionally to every type of hull.
