Great killing shell
Jud Rouse (North Carolina) | April 1st, 2023
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'm definitely a believer

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.

Great for divers

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!

Best all around shell
Mj (South Carolina) | January 30th, 2023
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!!!!

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!

Lethal Shells

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)
