Oh I’m kidding about the “photoshop” thing.

I’ve already ordered the heads about five minutes ago.

Done deal
I think we are all entitled to an internet "do-over" every once in a while. Cheers!
I'm happy to learn of a cool new product, and look forward to your report back on how they shoot.

They probably shoot fine, the ferrule base diameter matching the shaft is my concern.

The only thing missing now is the composition of the ferrule, I think it claims stainless from Excalibur but Sullivan Industries told me aluminum. Not a biggy for me because they both have the same weak point which is when the trocar tip hits something hard at an angle and the ferrule spreads up top like a flower opening. Its not something that happens often anyway.

Cant say for sure, but Ive had a few innerloc fixed heads and they were all aluminum.
They all shot well. But the "slice" 100gr heads were all but impossible to get out of the target .

Excaliber should get with VPA for a proper diameter head and be done with it.

Certainly that would go along with the simplistic and rugged mantra.

Well, they do exist. The Boltcutter 100gr Blue received today, will shoot next week

Rayzor at VPA says the custom shop 125gr vented is made for the larger shaft.

It looks like the blades are the same but I won’t know till I weigh them and interchange them.

The 100 grain is aluminum body in my assesment

The 100gr Boltcutter is longer than the 150gr because the screw in trocar is longer, probably to put that weight up front.

I’m hunting 300lb Plus Boar hogs hogs with my 410 the rest of the weekend, hopefully I can watch these heads fly this week.

I can only go by what the manufacturer is telling me at this moment until I can verify with Excalibur. Not looking for speculation or rednek ignorance with arrogance.
