Product Description
thompsoncenter_arms Spire point bullet with a polymer tip increases the ballistic coefficient of the bullet and punches into the pocket to open up the nose cone. Hard lead core with thick walls provides deep penetration at extended ranges and maximum down range energies at 1,000 - 2,000 fps velocities. Thick copper jacket at the base withstands magnum pressures without deforming the bullet.

Residents of DE, District of Columbia, IL, MA, NY and OH are advised to check local laws for restrictions before ordering ammunition.

    im pretty new to muzzle loading, but ive already taken two animals with my new tc omega. a doe, and just yesterday a 142 pound wild boar. in the case of the doe. i didnt see much evidence of expansion, just a clean pass through. the boar on the other hand, i hit a rib on the way in and, wow. there was a large exit, pieces of bone everywhere in side, and a sliver of cooper in between the hide and ribs. the boar didnt go 40 yards. oh, and im getting 1 inch groups at 100 yards at the range.

    Have been using these bullets for 2 years now .For this is what T/C recomended .Shot a beauty of a buck last year and a nice year and a halfer .The buck went 80 yards and piled up the doe felll in her tracks .I WAS impressed .Off to the woods for another year with high hopes to shoot another .BANG!!! She ran off never to find her . BANG!!! she ran off never to find her. Threee times this hapened to me.. now maybe its just me missing. Lets face it we all miss..Sitting in the stand watching my dad as a nice doe comes and prsents a nice broadside shot 40 yards ..BANG i watched this doe run 800 yards and tip over . Dad calls and tells me he missed !!Told him there was a dead deer . Walked that whole 800 yards and never saw a drop of blood .She was double lunged. With no exit hole. Makes me cringe thinking i may have let 3 deer die and not found them .Youd better be a sniper when using these bullets .

          300" elk in New Mexico at 200 yards. 170" Mule deer in Arizona at 100 yards. 180" Whitetail in Iowa at 100 yards. Longest shot to date was a 250+ yard shot on an east Texas hog. More east Texas whitetails and hogs than can be counted. 200 grain Shockwaves with 150 grains of 777 shot from a T/C Omega. consistent 1.25" groups at 100 yds at the range. Not sure why some are not getting a good blood trail. I have not lost an animal that received a well placed shot.

          I have now killed 4 deer with the 250 grain with triple 7, 100 grains of powder. This last season I shot a doe at 50 yards. It spun her around and dropped her on the spot. The following day, I shot a 200 pound, 14 pointer at 100 yards. The buck was quartering away. It also dropped him in his tracks. I have yet to track a deer with this bullet. The energy is devastating. If you don't drop a deer with this bullet it's becasue you made a poor shot and you need to go to the range. Every deer I have shot has dropped.

          Comments about Thompson/Center Arms Thompson/Center .50-Caliber Shock Wave Sabots, 200-gr, 15-pack:

          I have used this bullet for 3 seasons now and I am totally impressed. I load it with 100 grain pyrdex powder with a #11 cap in knight rifle I can aim where i want to hit out to 125 yrds an the bullet will go there. As for performance on deer I shot a doe with it 1st year I used it she only went 30yrs only small amount of blood due to slipping between ribs going both in and out. But no problem only went 30yrds. 2nd year I used it I shot a huge 10 point that field dressed 230lbs. hit rib going in and it took out heart destroying over half of it. Great blood trail but really didn't need it deer was down in 25 yrds. This year Shot a nice 8 point buck again clipped rib going in and awsome job on a double lung left massive blood trail and deer down in 30yrds. To nay sayers of this bullet I think no double lung shot on a deer with this bullet will ever go more than 50 yards. and you will probably see it go down. If it goes more than that you didn't do your job an get a double lug or heart and you just want to blame bullet. Say you did all you want but I know better. As for blood trail on doulble lung maybe you won't find much if it was a high hit but still double lung then i can believe it may not leave much. why I say this Is I have never seen a deer that was hit double lung go more than 75yrds not matter what they were hit with bow, muzzleloader with round ball or this or any bullet from muzzleloader. shotgun or handgun. good hits put them down fast no matter what. bad hits don't. One lug hits don't always put them down either.
          So do your job and these will do their job!!
          I have hunted deer for 40 plus years and killed lots of deer. Yes I have wounded a few also but in those cases i didn't put my shot where it belonged.

            Is this easier to load than the older shock wave sabots? I was informed that the newer sabots or plastic case is slightly smaller to insure easier loading.

            • A:

              The yellow super glides work better than the older black sabots, but after two shots, you're going to want to swab the barrel before reloading.
