Rio’s Royal BlueSteel has gained a reputation among waterfowlers for being both effective and affordable. Now upland hunters can enjoy that same value with Rio Game Load BlueSteel. New this year is a 2 3/4-inch 12-gauge load with 1-ounce of number 5s, 6s, or 7s at 1,325 fps designed specifically for hunting upland birds such as quail and pheasants. It joins a pair of crossover waterfowl/upland 2 3/4-inch 12-gauge loads in the Game Load BlueSteel lineup, one with 1 1/8-ounce of 6s, 5s, 4s, 3s, 2s, or BBs at 1,400 fps and the other with 1 1/4-ounce of 5s, 4s, 3s, 2s, or BBs at 1,350 fps. There’s also a 2 3/4-inch 20-gauge Game Load option with 7/8-ounce of number 5, 4, 3, or 2 steel shot at 1,345 fps. For even more power, check out the 3-inch 12- and 20-gauge options in Rio’s Royal BlueSteel line, such as the 12-gauge Magnum 32 with 1 1/8-ounce of 6s through BBs at 1,550 fps.
