    Kills 'Em All
    Thomas Cotton (South Carolina) | January 4th, 2022
    The 20 gauge #5's are some deadly rounds. I shoot a Franchi Affinity with a factory full choke at everything from September geese to wood ducks with these Boss #5s!

    Good performance
    Chris (Kentucky) | December 28th, 2021
    I purchased the 20 gauge 3” #5’s and the 20 gauge 3” #3’s. Both have performed excellent out of my benelli super black eagle 3 20 gauge with a factory modified choke. I have shot ducks and geese with these from 10 yards to 45 yards with out any problem. I might not shoot a 12 gauge for ducks and geese again. Very very happy with this gun,choke, and shells combination.

    Great for Teal but Not the Big Ducks
    Pete (TX) | December 27th, 2021
    I shot these 3 inch, 20-ga, #5s on a recent duck hunt in Texas. They did the trick on decoying ducks and teal. They did not, however, do the trick when pass-shooting big ducks (or those that were 25+ yards). Skip the sub-gauge for big ducks or make sure you work 'em in close.

    I shot the 12 gauge 5's and 3/5 mixture last year ind was really happy with their performance. Ordered a case of 20 gauge 5's to try this year and they have killed ducks from Missouri down thru Arkansas with no issue and almost zero cripples. Lighter gun, less recoil and faster follow up shots, what's not to love about that combination !
    20g #5
    Dwight (Washington) | December 3rd, 2021
    This is the end of my second season of pheasant and grouse. I am using the 2 3/4" #5 for early season and the 3" 1 1/8oz load for later. Both pattern extremely well out of my Benelli Monte, at 25 yards using a light modified custom choke. I look forward to next year, as I just purchased a case of 20g 3" #4. One shot, one bird all year.

    I've been hunting pheasants for over 40 years and I have to say these shells are awesome. The knock down power on wild birds is impressive to say the least. Thank you for producing such a great American made product.

    nice shells
    Robert (Idaho Falls) | November 26th, 2021
    good looking shells. I was told about them from other pheasant hunters in camp and purchased a case upon returning home. Haven't shot them yet but heard good things about them. looking forward to hunting with them!

    Kills birds for a fair price
    Mike (Colorado) | November 24th, 2021
    I made the switch in the fall of 2020 to 100% nontoxic after switching between steel and lead for years for waterfowl and upland. This year I made the switch to 20ga for everything. The shotgun is lighter and the recoil is gentle by comparison to my 12ga I used to need for steel shells. Thanks to BOSS,my life is a little simpler and I reduced the wear and tear on my body for a very reasonable price!

    Boss 20 GA #5
    Christian McMillan (NV) | November 16th, 2021
    I've been running 12 ga Boss shell since late 2019 season. Switched to 20 ga this year and both the 3" #5 and 3" #3/5 are hammers, shooting a Benelli M2 *** star choke. Its perfect for shooting 15yds to 40yds plus. Shooting mainly California rice fields and some natural marsh's in Calif and NV. If you square a bird up its dead! The #5 are a wing breaker at longer ranges on all waterfowl. doesn't matter if its a GWT or Spec they are down! Because the only thing my Labrador cant do is fly. I love BOSS and have converted everyone who tries it. Make sure you pattern it, I tried **** and *** at 30 yds both were adequate but the *** performance in the field is terrific.

    Impressed with this shell
    John Otto (Washington) | November 2nd, 2021
    Shooting the Boss 3 inch #5s is just like the heavy hitting lead shells I used to shoot in the 60s $ 70s. Great patterns. Love this shell!
