I recently tried the 250 grain Shock Waves in my MZ and they shot really good. Just wondering if anyone had used the 300 grain Shock Wave and how did it perform on deer?

I used the Shockwave 250gr. during 2004 season. They shot well outta my Remington 700ml. I killed a big buck with them during the late mz season, but was kindly disappointed. My first shot hit the deer in the spine, followed closely by a second. I didn't get an exit on either shot. I don't know if the backbone splintered the bullets or what, but I didn't like it.
I'am experimenting with Hornady 250gr. right now, hopefully results this fall.
Good luck!

Well Glory Be! Someone besides me is shooting their muzzleloader already!!!
Gramps, I've only shot the 250 Shockwave in my Omega. None of the sporting goods stores in my area carry the 300 grain. So I'm gonna order a box of 'em to try. I just bet that they'll perfom at least as good, but probably better. My gun seems to dislike anything lighter than 250 grain bullets.

kevinb, I do all my shooting this time of year. I belong to a gun club with 80 members; but have the ranges all to myself this time of year. When everyone else starts shooting in the fall, they have to wait in line for a chance to shoot.

I've shot mine the last couple of mornings while it was cool. Due to the lack of a range in my area, I am forced to shoot in the big hayfields where I hunt. Usually every other weekend, but here lately, I've been kinda obsessin' over 100 yard groups and how to tighten them.
But now I'm out of powder (trip 7 ffg) and primers, AND sabots. So its off to Jackson this next friday to the The Great Outdoors Store. Some of their ML stuff is discounted. (forgive me for getting off of topic, love talking muzzleloading) \:\)

I'm wanting to try the bonded shockwaves. I hear they hold up a bit better when bone is encountered.

the shockwaves in the 300 grain w/ 10 grains of 777 shoot well in my encore but I still have a lack of blood trail issue.I lost a nice buck last season .no blood sign at all. I hope I missed him but not at that range.I did not see him for the rest of the season. I had one doe go around 40 yards without a blood trail. A good buddy has shoot several with the 250 grain and had the same issues.

I shoot the 300 grain out of my Traditions, and love them. I changed to the 300 last year, was shooting the 245 grain PB. I killed a small buck last year with the 300 shock wave and 100 grain triple 7 powder. It was a complete pass through! Also shot a doe with them, in one shoulder out the other, broke both shoulders and still passed through. I'm very happy with them..
