Thompson Center 50 Caliber Black Powder Super Glide Shock Wave Sabots are a great black powder ammo choice for your 50 caliber muzzleloader.Thompson Center's entire product line is built with one thing in mind — quality.
The Shock Wave is a new spire point bullet with polymer tip specifically designed as a muzzleloading sabot bullet, not a conventional pistol bullet converted to a muzzleloading projectile. T/C's Shock Wave incorporates modern technology previously only applied to centerfire rifle bullets. The Shock Wave is as advanced as today's muzzleloaders and their propellants. The polymer tip of the Shock Wave bullet does double duty; it increases the Ballistic Coefficient for sustained high velocity down range, and it punches into the pocket to open up the nose cone for fast expansion.
The result; 3 inches less drop at 200 yards, and devastating energy at velocities between 1,000 ft/sec and 2,200 ft/sec. The Shock Wave has a harder lead core with walls interlocked with the jacket for maximum weight retention and expansion. Pick the bullet that will come up to the standards of your muzzleloader. Reach for a box of T/C's Shock Wave Sabots.
The Shock Wave has a harder lead core with thicker walls interlocked for maximum expansion and bullet retention. This means deep penetration at extended ranges and maximum down range energy.
Polymer Tip Spire Point for excellent Ballistic Coefficient (.240 for 250 grain bullet)
Tapered jacket for controlled expansion
Thicker copper jacket at the base to withstand magnum pressures without deforming the bullet
A revolution in sabot design. The Super Glide is the first sabot that can be loaded easily with one hand. Space age synthetic material is used to create this easy loading sabot. The two petal design supports the bullet for optimal rotational stability and breaks away when exiting the muzzle for match grade accuracy.
Four petal sabots can not match the accuracy of the Super Glide Sabot. These sabots are designed to withstand the high pressures of magnum loads. Available with Shock Wave and Bonded Shock Wave bullets.
