Boss ammo

What choke do people prefer with boss ammo? Any input on patterns with a sbe3 would be great. Thanks

Thanks for sharing , those patterns will kill Ducks and most Geese , no doubt !
At the distance you patterns are shot at , you might have more holes in your birds than needed but , dead is dead ,right ?
With the pellets size to match the birds size , the shots density is capable of a few more yards distance but , within the
decoys is a darn good practice . As you can see , the choke constriction you shot these patterns with , could use more
choke for farther away shots but as we all know , staying within your ability really is paramount to conservation ! :yes:

Good job pattern testing your setup , it pays dividends in the marsh !

Nice patterns, thx for testing and posting, great to see! Those are what I'd shoot in 20ga myself.

Bismuth is better than steel no doubt, hopefully better than steel on teeth, I could have bought a life time supply of bismuth for what my implant cost, steel BB in a goose!

I tried a kicks high flyer invector, full in the 20g citori at 40 yds, and it was terrible, 50% 88/174, 50 hits in inner 21”, 38 in outer ring 8 holes ( 6 1/2” discs) in 30” with 3 in center 21”. Boss #4 3” 1 1/8 oz. no photo, didnt want to waste the time

20 Boss #4 3 1 1/8, 40 yds, Carlson long range Delta Waterfowl, .590. One 6” bowl in center 21” with 3 hits, I rated overall as fair to good. Will repeat todayImage

Mostly looking for patterns with a 12ga. Ordered a set of carlson cremators. Will pattern when I get them. Was less then 50% pattern with kicks high flyer full.

That kicks full would be the same constriction as your factory modified choke

thanks 909, I thought the constriction was more than modified.
That goes along with the poor performance of the 20 g Trulock modified .600 also at 40 yds, with Boss #4 3" 1 1/8 oz, one shot at 80/174 =46%, 50 hits in center 21" and 30 hits in outer ring, 7 of my "6" holes in the 30" pattern, 2 of the holes were in the inner 21" center: second shot was 86/174 = 49% in 30" pattern, 50 hits in center 21", 36 hits in outer ring, 8 of my 6" holes (2 with 3 hits) in the 30", of the 8, 3 were in the center 21" circle.

The Carlson Delta waterfowl long range .590 with the #4 was 103/174 = 59%, 66 in inner 21" and 37 in outer ring. Six holes were in the 30" circle. Two of the 6 " holes" were in center 21' circle. Still looking for a choke for my second barrel.

Bpearl, the 20 yd pattern with the Briley skeet above is actually from an old 12g o/u Browning that I had Briley make chokes for. If you note the calculations the denominator is 246, this is for the Boss #5, 2 3/4" shell. Sorry for the error. This was my bread and butter choke jump shooting this year.
