Arrow Group Expectations

Post by Mnlc901 » Wed Oct 25, 2017 4:43 pm

I’m shooting a Micro 355 with 400 grain Quill arrows. Been shooting off a rest and have a good number of arrows through it. Had to replace the limbs, but it’s back to shooting 2” or so groups at 30 yards.

I’m wondering what size groups I should expect out of it? I’ve been shooting many years and had a Tenpoint that I could not shoot twice at the same bullseye. My Micro 355, well not as accurate.

Could use some advice.

My groups are better than that, but I shoot 400 grain executioners out of my 310 and 426 grain Zombies out of my 330.
I won't shoot at the same bullseye at any distance.

Start with all of the screws in the scope base, make sure they are snug. Also, locktight or whatever you preference the two screws in the bottom of the trigger that holds it to the rail.
I find that the two screws on the font of the scope mount are very easily backed out. And are often just there for show until locked in there.

Moving on from that is your shooting technique. Try and shoot from a bench and see if it tightens up.

Then your arrows. You'll need to spend some time with the quills and find out which vane should be your cock vane. Shoot the same arrow at the same spot three times in a row, rotating it each time. Record the vane that gives you the best accuracy. That alone will shrink your group. Almost every time .

After all that if it still doesn't do it, start looking at your scope .

I really like the idea of shooting the same arrow with the cock vane being rotated. I know there are inconsistencies in the arrows and where they hit. This will pinpoint the arrow itself.

Thanks

Most people on this board have solved that problem by going to an aftermarket, stiffer arrow.

But I think you will find your solution in that practise .
Hope it helps
