I've seen:

1) You should have come to the party.

but not:

2) You should have came to the party.

but when you replace come with something else, it's in past tense.

1) You should have went to the party.
2) You should have shot the target.

Which is correct for the first set and why is that?

It's should have + past participle

1) You should have come to the party. - OK

2) You should have came to the party. - not OK

1) You should have went to the party. - wrong ("gone" instead of "went")
2) You should have shot the target. - OK (but the past simple and the past participle of this verb are the same)

'Came' is the simple past tense and should never be used with the auxiliary 'have'. 'Come', even though it looks like the present, is the past participle to be used in the compound tenses.

This answer is totally wrong. Read the thread again. "have come" is correct, as stated above in other answers.

It's you should have COME to the party !

The right one is : You should have SHOT the target!
It's you should have GONE to the party!

YOU SHOULD HAVE CAME DOES NOT MAKE SENSE.

: )

I 've heard a lot of people say "you should have WENT" and I find it weird since they've learned english all along and are even really good at it! Hahaha.
