    Default Shockwave

    Two (2) 777 pellets, 250 gr. Shockwave. Deer at 40 yards. Broke one shoulder and found in the chest cavity.

    Thought?

    Looks like it tumbled its way into the deer. Very strange appearance.
    Leave my rifle, my fishing pole, my traps, and leave me be.

    In my Omega, that load shoots to one ragged hole at 75 yards. Even though the deer is dead, I'll admit that I am not impressed with the this bullet's performance at all.

    Is it possible the bullet hit brush and began tumbling before it hit the deer? I wouldn't e happy with that performance either. Something funky happened for the bullet to be dented like that.

    I've had the same outcomes with shockwaves I recovered on the opposite side of the hide. I switched to federal bore/Locs and the results this season were great

    Maxi Hunters are my favorite muzzleloader bullet.

    I saw those, and they looked really awesome. I like that they are full .50 caliber. Thanks for the recommendation, I think I will tinker with them this offseason!
