    I'm confused on the whole silver vs wood thing and how each effects them.

    Obviously all of these can't be heart shots when we see a Vamp get shot and then explode (Jason with the gun, the one Alcide's dad killed with the crossbow, etc) but I don't know if they are using silver for that or wood bullets.

    I think the bullets were said to be silver with a wood core (on a previous episode).

    Silver bullets cannot kill a vampire -- it takes wood in the heart. I don't think a vampire can be killed with only silver, since even injected into their blood in large quantities has been shown not to kill them (but it does cause them great pain and weaken them so that they could easily be killed by beheading or wood in the heart).

    I agree it is extremely unlikely that Jason would hit all those vampires in the heart on his first shot. Vampires are very fast. You can surprise them (since it takes them a second to switch into super-speed mode), but it is very unlikely that they would all be so easily surprised in a combat situation like this one.
