    Rio Ammo -- Thoughts/Opinions??

    Pricing out 00 buckshot, I found a "deal" on Rio Royal Buck (RB129)....$130 for 250 rounds.....
    Looks like the company's been around awhile (~1896), based in Spain...main USA HQ in TN.......
    Anyone used their ammo? Like? Dislike?
    The one comment I read said beware of the box(es) being marked "2 3/4" while the actual shell is marked "3 In." (small matter here, since I'm using it in a Moss 500 chambered for 3" anyway....)
    TIA!

    I recently started using their #4 Buck in my Moss 500 and have been impressed with its tight pattern
