Rio’s 12 Gauge 00 buckshot has been one of our most popular buckshot loads for many years due to providing great quality at a very competitive price point. This full power load exits the barrel at 1,345 feet per second delivering 9-00 buck lead pellets to stop a deer or home invader in its tracks. 12 Gauge buckshot has become an increasingly popular choice for home defense due to a great lineup of purpose built shotguns combined with the inherent advantages of 00 buckshot’s lethality.
Note that shotshell length is measured as the fired length of the shell and so depending on the crimp technique the shell’s length varies slightly before being fired. Rio uses a roll crimp technique which is slightly longer than the star crimp technique before its fired and as a result in some shotguns this may result in one less round fitting in your tube.
