Comprised of four hunts across North America with 20 demanding hunters and the same five branded guns, the Torture Tour will culminate at the NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits with a reintroduction to this prominent product, a reunion with members of the tour, and the reveal of the final video depicting this grueling tour that put the A400 Xtreme Plus through its paces.

Biodegradable Shotgun Wad

RIO Ammunition, the global expert in non-metallic ammunition, will be showcasing the first fully hydro soluble wad in the US at the NRA Annual Meetings (Booth 7445). This new component will be incorporated into the BlueSteel product line, taking a huge step towards reducing the impact of the shotshells in the environment.

The new hydro soluble wad is 100-percent biodegradable and all its additives are of vegetal origin, making it compliant with international standards. It also turns into compost, working as a high-quality fertilizer.

“The hydro soluble wad is a testament to RIO’s commitment towards innovation. We continuously work to make our shotshells more precise, more reliable and to reduce its impact on the environment. Now we can offer a shotshell with the two elements that are expelled from the shotgun, that is the shots and the wad, having a limited, even positive impact on the environment,” explains Eduardo Baeza, General Manager at RIO Ammunition.

New Steiner Optics

Steiner Optics (Booth 6855) will bring the newest additions to its expanding line of tactical, military, marine and hunting optics to NRA. Attendees can preview Steiner’s new Peregrine, Predator AF and BluHorizons binocular models.


Steiner’s new Peregrine Series birding binocular optimized for today’s birdwatcher. Available in 8x42 and 10x42 models both provide bright, true color and exceptionally fine detail through phase coated optics even in low light.

With Predator AF binoculars everything is always in focus, eliminating the need for a center-focus wheel and the hassle of chasing focus through thick cover, low light or moving objects. A revolutionary advancement in porro prism design provides the ultimate viewing solution for every hunting scenario from waterfowl to big game.

The new BluHorizons Series is the first sunlight adaptive binocular for all light conditions. Steiner exclusive Autobright™ Sunlight adaptive lens technology automatically adjusts brightness for the best view in any lighting situation.

It’s an ideal fit for both MSRs and bolt-action rifles, penetrates deep and delivers ample energy to take down any buck. Plus, it’s legal for hunting in many areas bottleneck centerfire rifle cartridges are prohibited. The loads will be available this summer in 20-count packs with MSRPs from $26.95 to $32.95.

American Flag Ammo Cans
