    Best shell on the market in my eyes! I shoot a browning a5 “newer model” with an improved cylinder, shooting the number 5’s and theses pack a punch. I won’t be going back to any other shells except boss.

    Says it all in the title. This is a quality product that can not be beat for the price. The shorties are a great load as well. Lots of dead birds and no cripples. Nice job BOSS!
    soo many pellets

    The copper plated Bismuth is a true performer, not to mention the brass on these hulls, easily 30% higher brass than Hevi or Federal. You will find yourself selling off all your old shells to make room for more Boss... My buddies put me at the end of the line in almost every blind... like a wall of bismuth, they know these Boss shells are smackin' "I don't always shoot Shotguns, but when I do, I shoot Boss"
    Hooked on the Boss

    First season using them and I am hooked. I got em late so started hunting without patterning first, but the results have been awesome (shooting 870 wingmaster fixed full choke). The less cripples claim has proven very true for me, I've only had a couple all season. This is really important to me because I mostly hunt public land with 15 shell limits, so wasting a shell on a cripple is heartbreaking.

    Go to shell

    I’ve been looking for one shell I can use on all the small game I hunt for - waterfowl, rabbits, and squirrels. I’ve used boss 2 3/4” 5’s, and 3” 4’s and settled on the 3” 5’s as being my favorite all around load. My most important consideration is reducing crippled ducks - I’ve lost more ducks using steel in the last few years than I’d like to admit. This years wood duck hunts using boss 5’s went well. Like others have mentioned, fewer follow up shots are needed, and it seems to kill them deader than steel 4’s on the first shot anyway!

    Best shot shell
    Chris Mahoney (Louisiana) | November 30th, 2021
    I have been shooting these shells for few years now and there is no comparison. I hunt between 45-50 days during waterfowl season and the knock down power and consistency of pattern is unmatched. I learned about boss shells by research and also got to shoot them at Fowlco Outfitters.
