    Boss Believer
    Randal Francis (Missouri) | May 12th, 2022
    I used the 20 ga. 3" #5's exclusively during the 2021 season. I was very impressed with the patterning and killing power on ducks and geese. I had my most successful season ever. Did have some issues with some rounds that got very wet.
    Deadly on decoying geese
    Jared Waldien | May 10th, 2022
    Last fall I picked up a case for my 870 20ga as a do all load as I’m slowly switching all my guns to non toxic. Got my best patterns with a full choke then took them out for an early season September goose hunt. Lead the bird and aim for the head and neck and you won’t have any issues as long as you’re taking responsible shots.

    Save yourself and swap to a 20
    Jake (Tennessee) | April 28th, 2022
    I was a little hesitant to swap from shooting 20 and shooting a 12 gauge in 3”-3.5” for years. I always thought that the 20 gauge would be a little underpowered but I was wrong. I saw significantly fewer cripples. I feel like you get clean misses and clean kills.
    Deadly on Ducks
    Ray Derman (New Jersey) | April 21st, 2022
    I am very pleased with the boss 20 ga #5's. I hunt nearly every day for over a month straight in New Jersey's salt marshes and I only had 1 cripple. That is saying a lot considering I killed nearly 60 birds this 2021-22 season. This shell downed everything from teal to Canadas and high-flying snows. I can't wait to see what the 12 ga version of this does.

    Boss 20 ga - hammers...
    Todd Elzie (Ripley Tennessee) | April 14th, 2022
    When I first started duck hunting we could use lead shells, something a lot of people that are hunting now never used. Your shells remind me of those days again! Switching to the 20 gauge for ducks and some Canadas has been a pure joy! I even started using the Boss Toms and have been completely satisfied with the kill power. Keep up the good work!!

    I haven't shot these shells yet but I am very pleased with the communication and service from Boss. I pre-ordered and was informed of shipping details so I could track the delivery process. I recommend the company from a service aspect.

    Even patterns, low POI
    Kevin Richardson (Converse, Louisiana) | March 28th, 2022
    These shells patterned good and even at 30yds out of early 90’s 870 wingmaster factory modified choke. Unfortunately the center of pattern was consistently too low for my likings. If i can get point of impact up on that gun I will order some more Boss.

    Boss 3" #5's
    Scott Frederick (Paris, TN) | March 18th, 2022
    Shot these in the 2020-2021 waterfowl season after pattern testing and was well pleased on decoying, feet down ducks. A note of caution, you need to pattern these with different chokes, your tried and true choke for/with other loads my produce dismal results as it did for me initially. When choked on down to extra full it's a slammer over decoys. If your shooting passing ducks at 40-45 yes, I'd recommend #4's for a little more thump.

    Won’t shoot anything else at ducks and geese from now on
    Lee (Texas) | March 2nd, 2022
    Bought a case of shorty 5s for my SBE , liked them so much I broke out my 20ga and bought 5s for it, liked them so much I bought 28ga 5s for next year. Customer service is first rate, if you have a problem call these guys, before you hide behind your keyboard and snipe them, you will not be disappointed. I’m a believer!
