    I have several thousand Rio Hulls that I would like to load, any suggestions on a load. Looking for a 16 yard load. Thanks

    There are numerous load out there. Use Cheddita data. You need to use a larger primer such as the Rio or Noble Sport. AA type primers will fall out.

    I have loaded 1000'a of these hulls without problems

    Use Federal Gold Medal Loading data,Use Rio Primers. I love Promo in them.
    Rio primers around here are $106 per 5,000

    I prefer to load these hulls. I have a good supply of Rio primers, and used Solo 1000 until they dropped the 25 lb kegs. Now I load Red Dot for 24 gram and one ounce, Unique for 1 1/8 oz Caps loads.

    I use CB 12SO and Windjammer wads, they work great.

    I shoot Rio's for ATA and Sporting, and have a garage full of empties. A good 16 yd. practice load that has worked for me consists of 17.1 of Red Dot, Rio 209 Primer, CB-6100-12 wad and 7/8 oz. of #8's. Nice consistent load at about 1175 fps.

    A Fiocchi 616 primer will stay put in the hull too.
