Thompson/Center Shock Wave Sabot Bullets
I have used these for five years with no problems except they are a little hard to set in my encore BUT they have the knock down power of a mule. This year i have shot a spike a nice 10 and a nice 8 and i have watched all of them fall this bullet works acceptionally well my friend who was shooting powerbelts decided to try this bullet and said he was throwin the power belts out for these bullets the next day he harvested a mature doe and dropped her where she stood i would advise these to anyone!!

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.

This bullet delivers serious damage! I shot the biggest buck I have ever taken this year with a definate one shot kill. The entrance hole was approx 5/8 of an inch with an exit hole of more than two inches. The buck dropped in his tracks! Accuracy is excellent with the 200 grain bullet and 150 grains of 777! Thanks T/C, Great Product!

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.
