Re: Excalibur Owners Anonymous

What I’m writing here is very basic and I think is well known and accepted by more experienced Excalibur affendos and generally knowledgeable Xbows users. The wider the limbs, the more inherent accuracy. The longer the draw length, the more inherent accuracy. The gentler the launch, the more inheren...

Re: New big foot stirrup

On my 2 405s and 400, I have removed the Air Brakes and only have the Dr Stirrup on the one I can more easily rope cock (400) . I found the Dr Stirrup greatly reduces back strain on cocking. The 405s have stirrups wrapped in an aircraft adhesive strip (much like a tennis racket handle wrap) , with ...

Re: changing inserts in zombie slayers

Thanks all for the input I think I will leave well enough alone and stay with the 80 gr . What is the length of your arrow? Wt of the nock? Fletching? Fletching orientation? Xbow you’re using? Weight and type of broadhead? Maximum range you would shoot if the arrow accuracy weren’t an issue? The an...

Arrow testing

Ive been casually testing arrow configurations for years. Over the past 2-3 years, my emphasis has centered on two things: long range accuracy and flat trajectories. Some basic principles to me. Once enough FOC is obtained for maximum accuracy, any more just hurts trajectory. For railed xbows, I bel...

Re: The new crank

I have both C-2s and a Charger. Currently, the Charger is used for the BD400 only - haven’t drilled the holes in the Matrix stocks yet. IF, there is no wrist strength problem, for range work, the Charger’s advantage is marginal at best. However, for hunting, the Charger should be much easier to use ...

Glad you’re doing well. Those are sneaky, beautifully colored snakes. Just won’t get out of the way.

Re: bolts for Bulldog 330

If you are just putting holes in deer, the arrows that the bow comes with work fine. If you want better, the next step up would be the factory fletched Black Eagle Arrows. Shoot the bow with what it comes with and if you aren't happy with the accuracy, then get yourself something better. The gentle...

Re: A couple of upgrades for the Micro Black Ops

Jeff,
That exact setup is what I’d get if I were getting another xbow. My M380 just might go towards such a project.

Re: bolts for Bulldog 330

The gentler the xbow, the less critical the arrows. Of course, Jerry at TAPP Nation makes great arrows. David at Wyvern Creations has arrows that will likely shoot very well out of your BD330. David’s Executioners will likely shoot extremely well.David and I have talked about his Executioners for Ma...

.....so what does the new crank cost in the US and why so much? :crazy:

Anthony :mrgreen:
It seems much more complex than the C-2. It’s just a more sophisticated device. If the C-2 is $169 and the Charger is $229, the Charger is more for the money, IMO.

Re: Not xbow, but bird down...

In England, only 3 1/4 dram equivalent is used. Testing of the higher pellet load and higher powder load of 3 3/4 actually was less effective overall. This was many years ago, likely before more optimized chokes and buffered loads. Whatever, I’ve been very impressed with the groups that my Nova , 66...

Re: Not xbow, but bird down...

Congratulations also! Does your son have to use your tag? Like most turkey hunters, I use 3 1/2” turkey shells (5s) but have tested low base 2 3/4 (6s) and have been amazed at their tight groups and range. A lot less recoil!
Just mentioning in case your son could benefit.

Re: Inspect your turkeys folks! (Graphic images)

Thank you for posting. Did you call it in? Here in Arkansas our season comes in so late, very few turkeys will work. A call will often send them the other way.

Re: The new crank

Yeah, I thought that was its feature ,to allow u to leave it on the bow. By the way ,why is it called a charger crank? :eusa-popcorn: I thought it was too. It’s mounte...
