The Rio Double Rubber Ball Cartridge offers a bit more power to engage a hostile subject. Similar to the single ball round, this 12 gauge cartridge has a range of 7 to 15 yards.  It allows law enforcement officers to keep a safe distance when firing, while maintaining a precise and controlled force projection. Velocity is 930 fps at 3 feet from muzzle. 

An option for those who traditionally use buckshot rounds is Rio's Rubber Buck Shot Cartridge. This ammunition works well to defuse escalating situations like violent demonstrations and riots, as well as animal control. This round fires 15, 55A durometer pellets of equal diameter, enabling law enforcement to safely engage both single and multiple targets. The pellets scatter with a patterned dispersal at a high velocity of 1220 fps out of the muzzle. This 12 gauge round has an effective range of 7 to 15 yards. It is sold in full cases of 10 boxes per case, with 25 rounds per box.

The Rio Bean Bag Sock Cartridge utilizes #7 shot inside a cotton web weaved 2 ply outer cover that is hand tied to eliminate having to use a machine stitch. This gives you a more stable trajectory over a greater distance, and the hand tied sock flattens on impact, distributing more impact force over a larger area of the subject’s body. The weight is 1.43 ounces, range is 7 to 20 yards with a velocity of 262 fps in a 12 gauge caliber.
