    I can buy,through our club,Rio shotgun shells for $53 a case including taxes (10 boxes). I have never heard of Rio shells. Are they a decent shotgun shell for trap?

    If you are going to reload them they take an oversize primer, regular primers fall out. HMB

    Never a problem in my 1100. Always thought a pretty clean shooting shell!

    a very respectable shell, imo. for some reason, i think the 7.5's perform better than 8's at trap. skeet 1 0z 9's are just as good as anything else.

    Great shells,use them all the time in my CG Summitt, I use the 1oz-8-1280 GPS loads,very reliable hard hitting load, 53 bucks for a flat is a good price, stockup on em,Breakemall ML.

    Ive always had great luck with them, I agree with the 7.5s being better but thats all in personal preference.
