Re: Another Ramcat question

They ll go through an animal and stick into the ground with seemingly very little damage but the tips will bend so easily putting or removing them from a quiver.
I still love them , fly like darts and are super sharp with a huge cut, awesome blood trail.

Re: Suppressor Trigger

I was surprised of how little creep my suppressor has compared to my matrix 380.

Re: 125 grain ramcats

I had no issues using a stock stirrup on my matrix 380 and ramcat blades at 6 o clock but blades were very close to hitting the stirrup.

Re: 125 grain ramcats

I haven't shot them with my micro suppressor yet, I loved them out of my matrix 380, they flew like field points past 60 yds.. In 2015 I shot a bear at 33 yds, deer at 38 yds and a wild turkey at 34 yds. Phenomenal blood trail and complete pass through on all 3. They won't clear the dipped stirrup u...

125 grain ramcats

A couple of years ago I bought 2 packs of 125 gr ramcats on ebay from a usa hunting store. Alabama or pensylvania i cant remember. The arrows flew great and all broadheads weighed exactly or very close to 125 grains. Last fall I had a friend bring 3 packs up from Tennessee and they varied in weight ...

Re: Speed setting for micro supressor @ 400grn?

My suppressor is shooting 16.5 " 432 gr zombies with lumenocks with speed dial set at 315
Great groups out to 60yds
If I use 1fps loss per 3 grains above 350 grains the calculation works out perfect
432 grains-350 grains = 82 grains ÷3 = 27.3
343 fps -27.3 fps = speed dial setting 315.7 fps

Re: Micro suppressor brace height

Bought mine from dealer at 7/8 "off bumpers. I set my string at 1/2 " off bumpers and since i ve shot it roughly 70 times. The string slowly adjusted to 1/4 " off bumbers. Seems to be shooting nicely!

Re: Fletching vanes

I ve noticed quills, diablos , executioners are all different. How critical is distance?
