I have friends that shoot it and like it. When I need more, thats probably what I'll get. I shoot rio's in sporting clays and they do burn exceptionally clean. One other thing, Rio customer service is about the best I have ever dealt with. Super nice people!! That means a lot too (to me at least)!

I have seen them in a few magazines.... maybe Cabelas or Bass Pro....

I think they are in McEwen, Tn..... and have heard you can go right to their business and buy in bulk at better prices. I know of people buying by the pallets.

If you click on the link I provided, and go through the steps on their website, there is a dealer locator section.

Just by entering Memphis as the town... I get Ammo Direct, Gander Mtn., and McClanahans.... Not sure if any of those are close to you though...

They are great guys, shot them for two years now, I know this is bad to say but I haven't cleaned my gun in over two years and it shoots like a champ. (Knock on wood)
