Fowlgunner, The USFWS has allowed more tin in nontoxic bismuth alloy, 6% instead of 3%. This newer stuff holds together much, much better than the old Winchester Bismuth though it is slightly less dense.

So for Boss ammo which size would be equiv to #5 lead? Is it so close we stay the same or do we go one up? TIA.

It isn't just "Boss," it is any bismuth that is less dense than lead, so you need to use larger shot sizes to achieve similar ballistics.
