    Boss #5
    Bill Shell (Tn) | January 10th, 2022
    Took me a while to figure out best choke and shot size. . We hunt mallards in W Tn. Carlson Creamator LR choke with 3 in #5 kills them dead. Great shells. I’m sold.

    The last shell I’ll ever buy
    Nicholas (CA) | January 6th, 2022
    I am definitely an ammo nerd, I have bought and tested just about everything on the market from Winchester SX to Hevi-Metal’s entire lineup and everything in between. The 3” #5 from boss put an end to my search. Buy the shot size that makes you feel comfortable for what you are hunting but this stuff was clean killing thick January Cans, Sprig, Mallards and Wigeon last weekend at 30-40 yards. We’re talking about lights out barrel roles. I’m too young to have shot lead at ducks but my friend’s dad agreed that this was doing the job in a similar manner.

    Excellent shells
    Russ Duck (Tennessee) | December 31st, 2021
    Favorite shell I've used in 26 years duck hunting. Great pattern density and extremely hard hitting. I've noticed a significant difference in bringing birds down cleanly in only 4-5 hunts.

    Great Product
    Pat W (Annville, PA) | December 30th, 2021
    I ordered 12 GA 3" MAG 1-1/2 OZ. #5 for ducks and they work flawlessly. I have ordered and used #3 and #3/5 in the same size for geese with similar results. I couldn't be happier. Shipping is fast, communication is great from this company.

    Hard Hitting, Bone Breaking Power
    Jeff Matz (NW WI) | December 28th, 2021
    Bought a case of #5's 3" for a late season SD pheasant hunt because they became available. Compared a couple mature roosters that were shot at similar distances and angles with the BOSS #5 and Prairie Storm #6 -1550 fps. The BOSS load broke bones and tore through the bird with a lot of damage, no pellets were left in bird. The PS load had several pellets in bird with feathers driven in, but no major damage. Both birds fell dead, so end result was acceptable. The BOSS shells are definitely bone breaking killers. Will be buying more when stock is available.

    First Hunt with Boss
    Dean Safris (KS) | December 24th, 2021
    Well, I have only hunted one time since I bought them but all I can say is One Shot, One Kill. I absolutely love everything about them as far as the shipping, the packaging, the service I received on the phone. The best part is the "Money Bag" that comes with them. What an ideal way to keep them at hand in my blind bag. I have a bag of #5s and a bag of #2s alongside for the Honkers. It is so easy to just reach into the bags to reload. So much better than fooling with shell boxes. I will write another review after we really get into them next week. Thanks for everything you guys do.

    Kyle Zindell (Pennsylvania) | December 23rd, 2021
    Love all boss shells I've shot straight 5s and 3/5s honestly the 5s are perfect for everything from big resident honkers to wood ducks and teal. Can't recommend it enough, love this stuff and will definitely be buying only boss in the future!

    Best shells for any type waterfowl I shoot a Beretta A400 extreme plus and benelli SBE 3's, my daughters shoot older Remington 1100's and they all pattern great and smoke ducks and geese!

    She bangs
    Pintailboom (Bayou in Louisiana) | December 23rd, 2021
    Simple insert in gun aim pull trigger and you will hear taps start playing because what ever flys in front of you dies duck,goose,or anything. They should call them widow Maker's or death pills . even my neighbor dog has came over and not left sense the boss got delivered he knows we will be killing birds no krip to chase or not find

    Best all around ammo
    Cam ream (Julian ,PA) | December 17th, 2021
    I got an email to leave a review on this ammo . Here it goes. Ive used this ammo all over the United States for just about any species . I've shot anything and everything with this. And people are surprised to hear when I say I use size 5 shot boss for scoters,old sqauw ,goldeneye ,mallards,harlequins . Any bird you can think of it does great on . The smaller shot with more bbs really does them in . The larger your spread and more bbs the better . This is all I hunt with and will continue with unless these guys come up with something new . This is the best ammo you can get for hunting and the ones that spit Hate on it and talk smack never used it
