Thompson/Center Shock Wave Sabot Bullets
Excellent On-Game performance
I have tried alot of other bullets and I had excellent results with another popular brand...However with my new T/C Omega I needed to go with a sabot style bullet.These bullets were included with my gun.My friend had harvested a doe last year with the same bullet,and had excellent results,so I tried them as well.
My first trip hog hunting I used 150gr of pyrodex pellets and a 250gr T/C shockwave.I took a 210 pound boar at 25yds with them.The bullet hit right where I aimed.
Penetration was not an issue...He was very thick,and the bullet made it through both shoulders.I was suprised at the amount of damage.
Boars are known for their toughness,but with the shockwave he didn't get out of sight.He went only 35yds and left an awesome blood trail.That's important to me because it is very thick down here,and I don't want to be looking for a wounded hog in thick cover.
I feel like this bullet did an excellent job of making a quick,and clean harvest on such a tough animal.They are strong enough for hogs,and even better for deer.I will use them again.

I’m sorry to say, but the performances of these bullets are terrible. In the past two years I have lost 3 deer. On two, there was no blood trail at all and I watched one of then swinging his front shoulder as he ran off. The third is what prompt me to write this review. There was a blood trail but it was very sparse and when I finally found the deer it was no good. It seems that if these bullets don’t hit bone they want expand. The in and the out hole were the size of the bullet. That tells me there was no expansion as it went through the deer. I purchased a box of 30 and will not be using what’s left.

They get'r done
I've been using these out of my Omega with 100g of 777 for more than 10 years and they never fail me. They fly true, hit hard and do a lot of internal damage.

dont buy this bullet. i hit a deer and the core completely separated from the jacket and wasted a whole lot of good meat. i wrote to T/C and never heard a word back. it groups good on paper, so maybe ok for target shooting, but i will never use one of these pieces of junk for hunting again.
