Not those specifically but Bismuth shells are an improvement over steel. The 20 shells a box struck me as a gimmick. A box is 25!

They are great shells, give them a try. This is the first season I have used them, and there is a night and day difference between them and steel. I fully believe they reduce cripples and lost birds by adding range and knock down.

Just another gimmick shell. Can only buy direct from Boss but you get a fancy bag that holds 20 shells.

I agree 100%. Over priced hype much like Yeti. Got some for Christmas a couple years back and had to use an extra full choke to get them to halfway pattern.

I think the 20 shell count is more of a move to differentiate from other expensive non-steel alternative shells, which usually sell in boxes of 10 shells each.
