Triton's Premium-Plus Quik-Shok ammunition features a patented, high velocity hollow point bullet developed by Tom Burczynski, inventor of the Hydra-Shok, Starfire and EFMJ bullets.


New For 2002 - 9mm, 357 SIG, .40 S&W and .45 ACP Quik-Shok/Hi-Vel now feature primer pocket and case mouth sealant. .40 Super now features case mouth sealant.

Extruded (Hyper-Stressed) QS-2 bullet core (first stage). Perfectly straight channels and small central "hub" area severely weaken the core and guarantee consistent fragmentation.



What sets the Quik-Shok apart from other bullets is that the Quik-Shok is designed to provide controlled core separation on impact. Unlike conventional hollow point designs, during penetration the Quik-Shok bullet expands very rapidly and then splits into three independent segments.  These segments continue to penetrate in three directions over an ever-widening area within the target. This dynamic terminal action results in maximum energy distribution and multiple wound channels.

Quik Shok's ability to rapidly transfer its energy over a large area within a living target provides important advantages. Each sheared segment creates its own temporary cavity, ultimately forming a series of impinging pressure zones which are believed to produce a powerful incapacitating effect. This wide-area trauma results in maximum motor interruption in the shortest period of time.

Quik-Shok Manufacturing Stages

From left to right: (1) QS-2 core inserted in jacket. (2) Core partially seated. See how the size and shape of the potential segments are uniformly maintained during compression. (3) Finished Quik-Shok hollow point.

Another advantage derived from the divergent paths taken by the Quik-Shok segments is a much greater increase in the odds of striking or affecting one or more vital organs - even in the event of a poorly placed bullet. Three permanent crush cavities produce maximum hemorrhage due to the greater volume of tissue engaged. Quik-Shok is the ideal choice for law enforcement and personal defense, where near instant incapacitation is critical, while eliminating the risk of over-penetration, at the same time.

Quik-Shok's unique Hyper-Stressed™ bullet technology provieds extreme accuracy and delivers a new level of stopping power, far exceeding that of conventional hollow point ammunition and even pre-fragmented rounds.
