More arrow testing. 30 April 2016

Post by SEW » Sat Apr 30, 2016 8:36 pm

I shot quite a bit late this evening. M405/Optimizer 2-8 Duralyt. Almost dead calm. I.e., virtually ideal conditions. Used Hart WA rest/Pro#13. No flags. Arrows: 18" Zombies, flat plastic nocks, AL inserts(26g), 170g field points . 3 configurations: SK 200 - Helical, Blazers - Helical, SK - 300 offset (?%).
Only shot 2 distances: 70 & 80 yds.
Averages of results - all were 3 shot groups.
Blazers - 70 yds - 1 1/2", 80 yds - 1" (can't explain)
SK200 - 70 yds - 1/2", 80 yds - 1 1/2"
SK300 - 70 yds - 2" , 80 yds - 1".

Yes, the 80 yd groups were better.
Possible explanation : all spreads were horizontal. The 70 yd groups were shot first. Wind was well below 5 mph and variable. The 80 yd groups were shot near dark and in dead calm.

Next: 80-100 yd groups with field points and FOCs.
More later.
