    Thor Bullets without a doubt, IF your TC will shoot conicals.



    Heres some ordering info that you will need to know about:

    Interested in trying out the Thor bullet? Simply email or call Thor bullets and Request a Free Sizing sample.

    This Sample comes with the following bullet sizes - .500" - .501" - .502" & .503" Diameter bullet. It is important that you start with the smallest Diameter Thor bullet & work your way up in Diameter size until you find the proper fitting Thor Bullet. This sample is free of charge.

    All it takes is a Phone call or an Email. Email preferred!

    Phone: (660) 244-5251

    I have a TC as well. I didnt know that CO doesnt allow pellets or sabots. Those Thor bullets look nice and I really like that they will give you a sizing sample. The no pellets would be a problem for my TC mine hates loose powder I had a heck of a time trying to find a load that would work...

    Good Luck on your mule deer hunt.

    These kinda look like the hornady FPB bullets.

    Not even close!!

    FPB is an lead alloy that can still fragment on bone and limit penetration.

    The Thor bullet on the other hand is actually made by Barnes, but sold under the name Thor. Its 100% copper.
