Non-lead Cartridges
Bismuth Cartridges

RIO’s Bismuth non-lead products are part of our pioneering Premium range hunting cartridge offer. Available in 12ga, 16ga, 20ga, 28ga and .410ga these hard-hitting payloads with superb downrange power are perfect for those treasured old guns which are intolerant to steel shot.
Softer than steel, Bismuth has 86% the density of lead, giving excellent long range power retention in wetland conditions.

BlueSteel Game Cartridges

High velocities, perfectly spherical steel shot and multiple shot sizes give you the stopping power you need under adverse hunting conditions.
