The two I have shot with the Shockwaves and 100 grains of BH209 have not impressed me. Exit hole was the same size as entrance hole and the wound channel was narrow. Still dead, just not what I wanted. They seem to just pencil through. One at 95 yards and one at 130.

X2 this is a killer bullet, shot extremely accurate as well. Killed a bunch with it & only 1 tracking job that a blind man could have done (30 yards) it looked like the ground was painted red lol.

Well sounds like the consensus leans toward the TEZ's.
Thanks for all the input and I will spend the extra for Barnes TEZ.
You get what you pay for.

That's what I've been shooting : )

They are a PITA to get though...you have to order them online. Im thinking about switching sabots to something I can pick up anytime like the Hornady SST.
