I saw at Cabela's that they got Kent Bismuth 1oz #5 in 20ga. So I bought a box. Think it'll wreck decoyed mallards inside of thirty yards?

It'd be nice to get my 20ga back in the blind.

That BOSS stuff seems like a good deal, but they don't have any in 16 gauge right now.

yes it is a non-toxic shot so its approved.....its copper plated the copper plating makes the shot as close to being a circle as possible so it flys really straight. my favorite combo is 5 shot for ducks and 2 shot for geese with a mod choke when hunting timber and a full choke when shooting fields and marshes...this stuff hits hard! and patterns awesome

I checked out the BOSS website, looks like it is copper washed bismuth. Less expensive and the box is pretty too. Is it approved by los federales?

I opened up one of the Kent 28ga. Bismuth last fall just to see what was in it. Supposed to be size #6 but it looked smaller and the 7/8oz. shot charge was light by almost 1/16 ounce, which is a lot in a small bore. I had wacked blue wings with them but they were almost too light for that. 

I figure going up a shot size and 1/8oz. more shot from the 20ga. will get me all the way out there to 30 yards with decent penetration. So, Improved cylinder choke. Just gotta pattern a couple before Saturday.

I shoot 1 ounce of #5 Kent Bismuth out of a 16 gauge for pheasants in South Dakota...crunches them out to 40.

I really like it.
