Thompson/Center Superglide Shock Wave Sabot Bullets - Bonded
This spire point bullet features a polymer tip and harder lead core. Walls interlock with the jacket for maximum weight retention and expansion; delivers deep penetration and a destructive wound channel. Bonded core and thicker jacket ensure that this bullet will stay together. Revolutionary 2-petal design supports optimal rotational stability for match grade accuracy that 4-petal designs can't match. These sabots will withstand the high pressures of magnum loads. 15 pack.

Rated 2 out of 5 by 1507MAG No Blood Trail Or Pass Through I used the 250 gr shockwave with 100 grains of Jim Shockey's Gold last year and killed 2 deer with it. The load shot 1.5 groups at 100 yds from my scoped TC Black Diamond so accuracy is not a problem. Both deer expired rather quickly but there was no blood trail what so ever. Neither kill had a pass through either which is strange because both shots were withing 40 yds. Neither deer had a blood trail either. I'm wondering if I should switch to the 300 gr bullet to get pass through shots and hopefull get a visible blood trail. October 20, 2011
Rated 2 out of 5 by bucky14 ehh I have shot these for about a year and finally got a deer with them. They do the job but no blood trail and very little expansion. I hit the doe in the shoulder wich usually drops the deer put she ran about 80 yrds and piled up. Bullet went through the shoulder and just to the edge on the opposite side. When bullet was recovered it looked like a 5 year old took a sledge hammer to it. It was deformed and only half expanded. Now im worried that i have hit other deer but with no blood trail its hard to completely tell. Would've gave it a 1 but accuracy is great out of my t/c omega with 100grains of pyrodex. Also they load easy with a little bore butter on them. February 20, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by big3shooter none I like these bullets. they shoot very well in my t/c omega which is a great gun.I would of gave these a five star but after 1 load they start to get pretty tuff even with the bore butter. January 3, 2010

Details:What is the difference between the Superglide Shockwave-BONDED and the Superglide Shockwave ? Thanks Bill
A:Bonded is a heavy hitting bullet for large and or dangerous game.
A:It has to do with how the lead core and copper jacketing are tied together. Which one you choose depends on the expansion you want. Bonded perform more like a all copper bullet where you retain near 100% weight and get expansion. Non bonded perform more like a lead bullet or a shotgun slug...less pass throughs and more kinetic energy in that it feels like a sledge hammer hitting a deer in the side instead of slightly expanding and passing through. The only thing "superglide" means is the sabot that comes with the bullet is a teflon sabot that goes down the barrell easier and they do I have shot them before.
