The bismuth helped me put more ducks on the water. Love the shells and the quick shipping!

First time using the Boss Shells, and they drop birds dead. I have used them on a marsh hunt and dropped them dead.

After trying other Bismuth loads I have determined that the Boss 2-3/4” 5’s are the bomb in my Browning Auto 5’s. I have found that they pattern incredibly well in factory full chokes at 40 yards. I have tried them in 3 different guns with the same results. Absolutely crushes birds. I will finish my waterfowl career using these. Thanks to Boss for making vintage guns viable in the duck woods again!

I’ve been on the fence about buying these shells but finally took the leap. All I can says is I wish I would have done it earlier. I’ve used them on late season pheasants and ducks. Outstanding knockdown power and great patterns out of my SX4. I can’t recommend these any higher. Also excellent service and fast shipping. I’ll be team Boss from now on.

I'll simply say from the get go, I'll be buying more of these. I' am an older duck hunter who used to use lead and have a lead issue with many of the modern steel shot loads with so many speed variations. I over came this with bismuth when it came out but didn't like the deformation issue. I tried this Boss 2 3/4 #5 load and have dropped several ducks that others claimed they tagged, and at cleaning, I have been able to rub these copper plated bismuth #5 pellet's in their faces; several said they will also be trying Boss soon and we'll see who is still dropping ducks.

I began hunting waterfowl 50 years ago with a 20 gauge loaded with #4 or #6 lead. As time has moved on I ended up shooting 12 gauge steel #3 at 1635fps, trying to get back the knock down power of lead. I found the faster steel loads did not pattern as well as the slower (1300--1450fps) loads. So, after researching and patterning my shotgun I decided to give BOSS 12 Gauge 2 3/4 #5 a shot. Wow, what a difference it made. The ducks were falling without the need of a follow-up shot. Now I am not certain what to do with my two+ cases of steel shot shells, as I no longer want to shoot them...

I was impressed by the reviews, so I ordered a case of 2.75-inch #5s. Ordering was easy, and shipping was fast. I can't wait to try them on ducks and pheasants next fall.

First time using Boss shells. Only got out once since purchasing but have never seen a duck fold like that. Very pleased. These are the only shells I’ll use from now on

Great shells, they're super! Great quality and a good price. However when I received my order of a case of shells there were no cardboard red shell boxes included as is past orders? Also, I'd love to see these shells available in paper hulls, preferably with a fiber wad instead of plastic. Thanks and keep up the good work!

In S.D. Waterfowl areas, non-toxic shot is required for pheasants too. BOSS cut down on cripples dramatically.
