This will be my first season using Bismuth and I'm looking forward to the results. These shells have patterned well out of my SBE2 at 30 yards with the Mueller H2O passing choke.

I absolutely love your bismuth, especially in #5, the ducks are dead when they hit the water. Wish I had quit shooting steel years ago,

I had an opportunity to share the effectiveness and results of these proven 3" #5 shells to a newb that we will be indoctrinating on his first duck hunt this upcoming season. We were out getting him conditioned shooting random clays and I took a medium heavy gauged cardboard box broke it down and folded it flat. I placed a two black circles on the folded cardboard and placed it about forty paces in a bush. First shot I placed dead center between the dots, and the point I made with the neb wasn't that my shotgun shoots to point of aim, but that the loads patterns so well and as important, every pellet shot through the carboard so centered you could see daylight through every pellet hole. Unlike four other loads we tried, these were the only ones that exceeded our expectations. A bonus from past season was that I had to pick out less pellets cleaning the ducks. Most of the pellets shoot through the ducks as well. great product!

I grew up shooting lead shot, as I’m 66 years old. Despised it when we had to shoot steel shot! Steel was entirely awful compared to lead. These boss 3 inch copper plated 5’s are the real deal. Killed ducks in Missouri this past year with these shells stone dead. Been waiting over 25 years for a product like this!

I ordered my first box of Boss right before the start of the 22/23 season. I started with the 3/5s and within a couple weeks was strictly shooting the 3in #5s. From teal to honkers, the #5s do it all. I had far less cripples than I'd ever had in past seasons. I had several hunts where guys from other groups on a small public lake would come ask what I was shooting because the birds were always dead before they hit the water. I feel better knowing the ammo I'm shooting will lower the number of crippled birds that get away.

I primarily shoot goldeneyes, and with these shells I rarely ever have to make any follow up shots, shooting way fewer shells and losing less birds they are well worth the money!

Took a case of #5s on my last out of state hunt and shot nearly the whole case. Inside 40 yards ducks did not stand a chance. Chose #5s as we were shooting teal all the way up to geese. Has a little more recoil but controllable. Outside 40yards I didn’t see any advantage as I still had some cripples but that’s expected at a distance that far. A little expensive to use on everyday hunts, but will buy another case for my out of state hunts.

Just returned from a diver hunt in NC and these 3” #5’s consistently smacked birds dead in the air for a week straight. Very few cripples at all. Best value in shot shells by far!!! Thank you for an amazing product!!!!

And hit a homerun with these shells! Took the 3" #5's on a South Texas duck hunt and was very pleased with their performance. First time shooting copper coated Bismuth and these shells really performed well. One guide we hunted with was calling the shots waaaaay too early as the ducks were what I would call "On the fringe". The guys shooting steel were not able to knock them down, but the two of us shooting Boss shells did. I also found that there were a lot less cripples than when I was using steel. These are amazing shells, I will be buying more and they will be my duck hunting staple from this point forward.

This is my second season shooting Boss shells, and there is a reason I've kept coming back to order more cases...they are simply the best shells for the value on the market! They pattern and shoot extremely well out of all my shotguns, and I have noticed a significant reduction in cripples that hit the water. I would recommend them to anyone!
