Took a chance...
Robert Bowers (VA) | January 23rd, 2023
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.

The Best
Andrew (WA) | January 19th, 2023
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!

Once I started using Boss Shot Shells crippled birds were no longer a problem for me. These shells are LETHAL!!! I recommend them to everyone I know.

3" #5 shot
Joe Esposito (NJ) | December 30th, 2022
Great shells, patterns well with a factory choke out of a Beretta Xtrema2. Bought the 3" #5 shot takes down geese flying at 40 yards. Definitely worth the money and only using these from now on.

Excellent shells
Anthony (OK) | December 26th, 2022
Took these shells out to pattern test them before hunting with them, found the shells pattern extreamy well with my Browning cynergy and a mossberg utilmag pump, both guns with patternmaster choke tubes (code black goose and anaconda mid and long range chokes)

3” #5’s poison on ducks and geese
Tripp (GA) | December 14th, 2022
Hooked on the 3” Mag #5’s.. this is 3rd season shooting them and they are just flat out the best. I love hunting with buddies and watching them see the difference in hits/kills and cripples.

"Put it on em!"
Tracy Atkins (Longview TX) | December 1st, 2022
This is the second season I have used the 3 inch # 5 Boss. Real happy and confident shooting them. We went on a 3 day hunt this past Thanksgiving weekend with our good friends at Tornado Valley Outfitters. Great hunt and I shot everything from teal to lessers with those # 5's. Cause I am getting long in the tooth I have been contemplating to start shooting a 20 gauge. And I feel pretty confident I could after using the 12 gauge shells. It's not just hype! But like the old man back in 1972 that first took me hunting said " it doesn't matter what choke or shot you use -if you don't put it on em!"

There are plenty of reviews saying these are the best shells, so I won’t bore you with any more of that. What I was most impressed with was the fact that they got me my case of shells in four days, and I ordered on a Saturday night. Also the correspondence of emails letting me know the status was correct prompt and surprising

3” #5’
Howard Simmerman (Linesville Pa) | October 24th, 2022
I have hunted 6 days so far this year. I’ve shot 14 ducks a goose and a groundhog all with these shells from 5-30 yards and only needed 1 follow up shot on a mallard and that was because I hit him a bit far back. Love these and will be ordering again. Thank you Howard
