I bought these as an option to return my dad’s 1961 Ithaca 37 to the duck Marsh. The gun has a 30 inch fixed full choke and could not shoot steel. Previously bismuth was cost prohibitive, but these Boss shot shells are competitively priced with premium steel loads. I ordered them Monday night before Ohio’s waterfall opener and they showed up less than 48 hours later, on Wednesday afternoon. Shooting them over several weekends, also in another gun, their performance seem to be good, knocking down more birds than steel loads. I plan to head out a few more times a season to get a better idea on how they perform and will likely order some more, in larger shot sizes for goose season.

Excellent Pattern

Bought the "shorty" for a '51 Sauer SxS choked Mod/Full to use as a late season pheasant and sharptail gun. I'm very impressed with how they pattern and will shoot this round confidently to 45 (mod) and 50 (full) yards.

Brought back the magic

When I saw the ad for BOSS, with old guys carrying vintage shotguns, I decided to try them. I recently inherited my fathers Winchester mod 12 skeet grade with a Cutts compensator. My dad hunted with it , and called it "old never miss". With the modified tube and some boss 5s I shot a limit of fat green heads and widgeons.That load of 5s folded them , DOA, when they hit the water. No need for swatter loads to finish cripples and swimmers.BOSS brought back the magic of that model 12. THANKS!

Great shell

Never heard of Boss, got referred to them and decided to give them a go with a case of #5's. Been slinging lead at pheasants for 40 years decided to go non-toxic. Very impressed. Took a pup to a preserve to get some pre-season work and they did great. Hit hard and clean kills -my only miss wasn't the shell's fault.

Terminal performance on the birds. One shot kills are the norm. Fast shipping and great service.

After all of the research I have done on Boss Shot-shells I was totally convinced to give them a try. It is my understanding that Boss is as close to the knockdown power of lead that you can get. Very excited to used them this duck season. Best customer service I have dealt with in a long time. Way to go Boss!

Great service - Better product!

I ordered these late on a Thursday night they were at my front door Saturday afternoon. I’m still amazed that I can kill t2 big Canada’s with Shorty fives at 30 yards with 1 shot! I tell anyone that will listen BOSS is 100% worth it given the performance and customer service!!!

I've used both the 16 gauge loads and the 12 gauge loads on upland birds and ducks. They've performed very well. Also the shipping has been very fast too. Great products from a great company
