Rio Shotshells (Size 7.5) $78 Per 250 @ Shooters Delight (QLD)

230

This is a great price on a 250 slab of Rio shotshells. This is the cheapest I have seen in Australia. If anyone else has any good deals, especially on Remington 7.5, I would love to see them. I am a big fan of Remington shotshells, however, people who use these are also happy

  • Please note….this seems to be an on going deal. They have heaps in stock, 247 slabs in stock at time of posting.

  • Reload my own for skeet …. so I can have a lighter load ……. you just have to break the targets.

    • How much does that cost per shell?
      I did the maths on it once and it worked out cheaper to buy 12 gauge in bulk than to buy the components and make them yourself. Even making 410 bore it was going to cost me $0.30 each. So I figured 12 gauge was going to be about $0.60.
      Have you tried Remington 7.5, they are 1180 fps, recoil is easily manageable, even for me and I am only 173 cm and the price is $94

      • when you reload your own you can make them lighter ….. 200 shots on a Sunday with new shells isn't fun.

  • Thanks OP, OzB meet up tomorrow?

  • They have some good deals on ppu centrefire too. These are great people to deal with. I have never had a problem with them. Their prices are comparable to cleavers.

  • Although I have a firearms license, I can see the popularity of firearms related bargains not being popular as the need to have a license reduces the audience, like Microsoft HUP deals which need an EDU mail address, or Costco deals that need $60 membership etc …..and you can't exactly mail order a gun and get it delivered unlike a fridge or toaster ……..

    • Still no reason for people to neg it because "muh feels", even though they are all perfectly legal.

      • yeah, no reason to neg …….. Queensland has Bob Katter with his 2 Colts as the electoral posterboy for firearms….. and he's a duly elected member of the federal government. In Victoria the best we could do as our firearms poster boy was Chopper Read …. and he probably wasn't the best ambassador for firearms. ….

      • Porn and cigarettes are perfectly legal, site doesn't let that get advertised?

    • That’s right, we need to have access to adult stores in ozbargins, or a adult ozbargins page where you must agree that your 18 befor entering, bring back guns and boobs.

    • Mail ordering a fridge?

  • Some weird sh*t happening on OzB today…

    • Many ozbargain people buy guns and ammo. Both of which are ridiculously overpriced in this country. When a fellow shooter hears or sees a bargain he/she tells everyone. These shells go for at least $100 per 250 slab in most gun shops. This is a bargain.

      • Guns and ammo are so expensive here that I can't justify spending on them. Having responsibilities means that spending thousands on guns and ammo and safes isn't an ozbargainer thing to do :(

      • many huh? Not really any quantifiable evidence on that I would imagine…

        There's a pretty good sketch by a comedian about how the high price of ammunition helps guarantee that WHEN someone gets shot… you know they must have deserved it, lol

        Keep ammo prices high, I say ;)

        • Chris Rock. "We don't need gun control, we need ammo control. When a bullet costs five thousand dollars, there'll be no more innocent bystanders"

    • Gotta protect the eneloops.

    • Thank you very much for your advice. Would you think Remington 7.5 for $94 I a better deal???

    • 3 people I know directly use these as their main DTL Clay round, have fired hundreds if not thousands with no issues at all. Add to that the Olympic range in Sydney sell these as their regular round (and have said they go through many pallets of them every week) I'd say you got unlucky.
      Can you also explain what you mean by "poor capacity"? I've compared Rio to a few other brands of 7.5 with no significant difference between them, as long as you keep in mind a 7.5 is not suitable for larger animals. Also what do you mean it nearly exploded in your pack? Do you mean it got squashed and almost opened in your pack (in which case I'd say you're probably carrying it wrong) or something struck the primer and almost set off the shell (in which case you're definitely carrying it wrong!)?

  • Nowadays I'm struggling to get off more than one shot a day. But this could be a good deal for some.

  • Any deals on 9mm?

  • Awesome! I'll need a few cases of these to go with my new lever action shotgun from the previous post!

    Lol @ the users coming in here and trying to get the deal negged with bogus excuses. Exploded. For no reason. Riiiiight.

    Exploded on your feelings!

    There is no such a thing as ALMOST EXPLODED!
    It either exploded that you weren't typing here or it didn't and you are just triggered!
    There is nothing wrong with the deal.
    Thnks OP, can we have more deals of this kind? More people are nowadays looking for that stuff, reports say.

  • This should be marked as a TARGET deal, as buyers have to have a firearm licence, similar to Costco deals.

    For people who don't like it, or like me, have no use for this type of deals since having no licence, can filter all TARGET deals in their feeds.

    Alternatively, moving firearms to a new category,e.g. luxury sports or outdoors, and we can block it as well.

    • Quite logical, I am interested in deals on firearms and this may decrease the political posting on such deals.

    • FYI:

      hidestore

      • I feel like there should be another hide option that's linked to tags or something. So you can hide anything tagged as ammunition/firearm, etc. Personally I think that would be more useful than hiding each store that sells things you don't want.

        • -1 vote

          Agreed, there should be a new category for 'Killing Items' that people can opt out of…

        • Yes that would be the ideal solution, unfortunately hiding by tag is simply not possible. See my comment & the existing discussion here. Basically this bit:

          Doing anything by tag is quite problematic as many users don't tag deals, so you'd end up having a pretty inconsistent filter that would only hide half the deals or it would take many hours before they are hidden until a moderator/power user tags them. That's also the reason we can't have subscriptions on product tags or similar.

          Similar to the alcohol situation, blocking the common stores is the best solution as things stand. Needless to say, we are completely aware that the ability to subscribe to tags and to hide deals by tags is most definitely there; if there is anyway that would become possible in the future we'll do what we can do implement it.

      Target doesn't sell ammunition.

      And any car insurance deal as TARGET too, as you need a driver's licence? …and a car.

      Alcohol deals as TARGET because you need to be over 18?

      Pretty much every deal is targeted in one form or another, whether it is based on cost, age, location etc. The VAST MAJORITY of deals aren't of interest to everyone.

      I would hazard a guess that most people pull the trigger on less than one deal a day …probably less than one a week.

  • I like the VOR-TX:

    Bullets open instantly on contact—no other bullet expands as quickly. Nose peels back into 4 sharp-edged copper petals destroying tissue, bone and vital organs for a quick human kill.

    • I thought wow that's a strange way to describe your product, so I googled it.

      "Bullets open instantly on contact – no other bullet expands as quickly. Nose peels back into four sharp-edged copper petals destroying tissue, bone and vital organs for a quick, humane kill."

      You dropped the e out of humane to further your agenda.

      It's funny that the "gun nuts" on these posts are coming across as rational, articulate people whilst those opposing these deals appear a little unhinged.

      • Yes, I find nothing screams rational like believing "Nose peels back into four sharp-edged copper petals destroying tissue, bone and vital organs" = humane

        • Ok I googled that too:

          http://kb.rspca.org.au/what-do-we-mean-by-humane-killing-or-...

          Are you advocating slow, painful deaths? I'm sorry but I don't understand your argument here.

        • @ollierohn:

          Well, if it's TRULY humane, why don't people use this when administering capital punishment?

          Let's not start down the strawman of "if you don't believe A, you must believe B"

          I'm not specifically making an argument - just kind of pointing out the irony of people saying it's a humane way of killing things… instead of, you know, NOT killing things… or (god forbid) tranq darts etc… which I get is not really realistic (hell, I grew up on a farm).

          Anyway, enjoy your coffee :)

        • @kudoz: I doubt you'll be able to determine the type of round used when administering capital punishment, or that those states still using it care about being humane.

        • @kudoz:

          Well, if it's TRULY humane, why don't people use this when administering capital punishment?

          It's called a firing squad and according to US News it's making a comeback.

          Yes, I find nothing screams rational like believing "Nose peels back into four sharp-edged copper petals destroying tissue, bone and vital organs" = humane

          You genuinely don't understand the purpose or just trolling? The point of a hunting round is to kill as humanely as possible. This is generally done by creating a sufficient amount of damage to the animal to end it's life as quickly as possible = humane.

          just kind of pointing out the irony of people saying it's a humane way of killing things… instead of, you know, NOT killing things…

          Hardly ironic. There's no denying the fact is that Australia has way too many feral animals and NOT killing them isn't exactly a responsible way to deal with the problem. The alternative to shooting is generally baiting or controlled release of some disease.

          Dead in half a second as the projectile's "nose peels back into four sharp-edged copper petals destroying tissue, bone and vital organs" (they don't even hear the bang) or a slow painful death from poison or disease over a number of days?

      • Easy there, I've seen no gun nuts here. (unlike American forums !) Nothing wrong with a bit of target shooting or hunting food and vermin.
        The description was a bit confronting though.

  • Feels like OzB is getting trd'd

  • Are these shells the best choice for zombie headshots?

  • Best for clay targets
