Re: Bolt question

I have been shooting both bolts and my compound bow with weights of 408 and 416 grain with out problems
My traditional arrows weigh 496 grain if hog is under 200 and within 25 yards I will fling out side of that they get to walk
I do everything I can do to not hit shield it tends to just p#$$ them off
