The new Royal Pheasant line has copper-plated lead pellets and will be available in 12-, 20-, and 28-gauge. The copper-plated shot increases pattern performance and improves results in the field. The Spreader line has a wad specifically designed to improve dispersion by 25 percent compared to other spreader wads. The company is also launching a new line of turkey loads that feature a special buffer for improved performance. In addition, copper-plated pellets provide greater structural integrity of the shot, increasing energy downrange and stopping power. Lastly, Rio is introducing the Vintage 1896 Paper line, named after the year in which the company started producing its first cartridges. The hulls of this shotshell are made of paper instead of plastic, ensuring the same experience felt by shooters 120 years ago, when the cartridges were handmade. These cartridges are also more environmentally friendly. The initial product range is ideal for clays and flyers.
