X1000 Except I use the 240 grain xtps.I shot 3 deer with the shockwaves.Small entry and exit hole and no blood trail.The xtps shoot well and expand well in my TC Impact and Omega.

I shoot the 300 grain Shockwave out of my T/C Black Diamond with 90 grains of 777. Accuracy is great but have not had a chance to shoot a deer with them yet. I did previously have problems with the 240 grain XTP. Shot and lost two deer with lung shots.

If you choose the shockwaves, make sure you own a good tracking dog!!!

I have shot them back when I used to own a inline , I had real good luck out of them and the xtp. I shoot a patched round ball now in my Hawkins , and have killed just fine with them so , it should be a cake walk with a 240 shockwave in a 50 cal.

I have great tracking skills but I have not had to use them yet and I shoot 250 shockwaves. Only a few ran (only 40 to 60 yards) and I had massive blood trails to follow.

I killed 3 deer with Shockwaves and in my experience they expand better if you hit bone or hard muscle, like a shoulder. One deer a young buck but, he was about 120 lbs. I hit him in the shoulder at about 50 yards and it stopped under the skin on the opposite side. The other 2 deer I hit behind shoulder through ribs and I didn't get much expansion. They shot awesome though with 90 gr. Triple 7.

Most of the shockwaves and sst sold at walmart and others are bonded bullets made to be pushed faster than normal MUZZ. I order the non bonded bullets and seem to get good performance with 100 grs and 300 shockwave.
