Thompson/Center Superglide Shock Wave Sabot Bullets
Everything about it is excellent!!!
While sighting in my new Omega muzzleloader we went through a tough time trying to figure out what was going to shoot accurately through it. We finally switched primers and everything came together with these fine sabots. With Remington clean bore primers, 100 grains of pyrodex pellets, and 50 cal. 150 grain T/C superglide shock wave sabots I was shooting 1.5 inch groups and 1 inch low at 150 yards. That was my first experience with these bullets. I shot a doe through the brisket while ground hunting. While dressing the deer I found the bullet pushing out on the hide on left hind quarter. That was my second experience and I was extremely pleased with accuracy, penetration, and the destruction that the bullet caused. I have stocked up on these bullets because I don't plan on running out.

EXCELLENT SABOT, TERRIBLE BULLET
My father drew a NV Muzzy bull elk tag. I'm partial to Barnes bullets in my Omega and we tried them in his Knight Disc but reloads were difficult and accuracy in his gun was very poor. So we went to these shockwave bullets. They're very accurate with 120 gr of 777. It not being my tag I just took it on faith these bullets would preform. BIG MISTAKE!!! we ended up loosing an amazing bull. Not wanting to change our setup in the middle of a short season we stuck with it saying it was a fluke. We finally got another chance at another bull. 5 bullets to the vitals and 45 mins after the 1st shot he finally expired. It was terrible and I wish he nor we had to go through that. When quartering him we found 3 blew through both front shoulders and 2 stuck just under the hide, completely unexpanded and the jacket barely even tore. We preformed one last test when we got home. The test I normally do to all my guns, fire into a Pinion Pine round; to test penetration, expansion, weight retention. These are extremely knotty and hard wood for pine, my 300 RUM usually can't muster 10" of penetration with all copper bullets. This load, of 120 gr 777 and a 250 gr shockwave, was 1" from blowing through the entire pine round. after extraction of the shockwave from the pine round we noted the only damage to it was the yellow point was broke off, no expansion what so ever on 6/6 bullets. Please do yourself a favor and shoot a different bullet!

Well worth the switch
As suggested by my uncle who has had great success, I switched from Hornady's mid-season to get some extra distance. The 250 gr. T/C Shockwaves shot great out of my .54 Knight LK with 100 gr. Pyrodex pellets (I used .54 sabots with the shockwaves). I killed an open field 8 pt at 200 yds. No way would have I attempted that shot before. My uncle took a nice 10 pt same day with the shockwave and T/C Triumph.
