Grew up shooting a 16 ga. Stevens SxS and Browning Sweet 16, but after conversion to steel, had to set these aside. Cripples, AWFUL performance in general. I've been shooting BOSS in my 3" BSS 12 for sea ducks with spectacular results, so thought, "Why not 16?" . These vintage guns are now back out of the safe. 16 ga. BOSS #5 is an absolute PHEASANT HAMMER. Performance at least equal to #5 Lead in the old days. Great Product, just wish you could keep in stock.

Shells arrived very quickly! The quality seems to be very good, plus the "16 GA" color to easily tell different gauges apart. Looking forward to shooting these in a 1925 Browning Auto 5 and a 1952 Winchester Mdl 12. I'm sure I will be happy with the performance. Will pattern both shotguns as soon as soon as I get the time. Just wish there would have been 2-3 sturdy boxes to put some in for trips to the hunt this winter.

Love the product. Shipped super fast had the shells in 3 days. I like that they have 1oz of shot in the 16ga load vs other products 15/16. My only negative thought is I wish the bulk purchase came with individual boxes. Will certainly support boss ammo and continue doing business with them.

I was very pleased with the fast delivery of the 16 gauge ammo. I needed the ammo to be able to duck hunting with my old gun…no the ducks didn’t show but Boss delivered the necessary shot component to make a great day better with increased confidence. Yes I will now get some Boss shot for my 12 gauge as well.

Have used these on pheasants, huns, and mallards/blacks. Excellent patterns and effective. Strongly recommend.

I've been shooting BOSS 16ga 2-3/4" #5 shells for 3 years now. I've shot them out of CZ Sharptail and Franchi Instinct SL. The shells are absolute hammers on wild Iowa roosters. I've been shooting non-toxic for years and since switching to BOSS, I do not have the cripples or lost birds I had with steel (12ga Weatherby Orion/Browning BPS - usually 2-3/4" 4 shot, Blackcloud/Federal blue box/Winchester SuperX). It also works well on the occasional duck that gets off a drainage ditch. I cannot recommend these shells enough. I've recommend them to all my hunting partners and many have purchased with same result (20ga 870 Wingmaster/.410 waterfowl loads for kids). I've also shot the 12ga #5's for ducks and hammered them too. I've purchased the 12ga 3" 3/5 mix for geese and plan on shooting that load for sea ducks next year. The way these shells perform, the price point, the shared value of non-toxic shot, the veteran discount, Midwest company...are all bonus reasons to buy BOSS. Highly recommend...will not disappoint!

Used these shells for past 2 weekends on Iowa ringnecks. Cycled great and worked like a charm. These are my new "go to" shells.

I had an opportunity to use the Boss 16g #5's in my vintage Browning Sweet Sixteen. Cycled perfectly and the modified choked 16 did the job with authority on the South Dakota Pheasants! Pictures and videos don't lie. Thanks for the quick shipping to get these before my trip.

Extremely high performance shells that are a pleasure to shoot out of my over/under. Worth every penny, will be a repeat customer!
