Gave up on the powerbelts last year and started shooting the Barnes TEZ 250's.
My gun seemed to like them better but my wallet did not.
Now considering giving the Shockwave 250's a try.
Using 100 grains of Pyrodex in my CVA Buckhorn.
Any opinions?

I use them (Shockwaves) at smokeless speeds, but I and several others have had expansion problems (none or very little) at the speeds Pyrodex, 777, and BH 209 were giving me. If you hit the boiler room, shouldn't be a problem.

The way I see it and its just my opinion, I target shoot with the Shockwave/SST and hunt with the TEZ. Even if you kill as many as DA you are just out $30-$40 bucks. That's a drop in the bucket compared to what most people spend on just one day hunting.

My thought as well, but I was asking Mike243 which bullet he was referring to in the Stalkhunter story.

ive killed several with 250 @ 2600 fps and 300 @ 2395 fps and several 300 @ 1709 fps 105 777 loose never an issue with sst

barnes is probably a better bullet but the tc/sst have a better bc for longer shot accuracy


i have killed several with 245 295 348 and 405 powerbelts in non smokless ml
id rather throw a rock at a deer than to shoot the 245 or 295 pb
the 348 is ok and the 405 lead hp powerbelt is the bomb and i use them in my sidelock percussion exclusively now
