is switched to shockwaves this year and seem to hold good groups but dont know how they do on deer....so I can tell you what i didnt have good luck with....I was shooting the hornady lok n loads which held group ok, but the three does i shot with them passed right through the deer and never dropped a deer, they always ran, it was like they werent expanding and doing what they were supposed to do so i switched.


You do know this is the same bullet right? Aim for the shoulder and they don't go as far and you will have a blood trail. High on the shoulder will drop them in their tracks.
