Re: BC Proposal to BAN Scopes on Crossbows

Wow. The ignorance in that regulation is unbelievable. Yes a crossbow, or ANY bow can be accurate at 100 yards. My frend, back in the 1970's competed in Olympic Archery with a longbow at 70meters! THAT does not mean you can hunt wild game at that distance. The same idiot that would shoot at a deer a...

Re: Smokers ?

I am all about the REC TEC pellet grills. https://www.rectecgrills.com/ Use it all the time and smoke about anything. Deer, boar, bear, chicken pork, jerky. You can also turn it up to 500 degrees and use grill plates and get cook like a "regular" grill. A reverse sear steak is pretty awesome. First ...

Re: HHA optimizer speed dial at close range

My scope on my Micro is about 1 1/2" above the rail. I am shooting 16" ZS with 110gr brass and 125gr BHs, with a Lumenock. With THAT ballistics coefficent, (yours is most likely similar), and a 20yd zero, my arrow is 1 1/2" low at 0 yards, rises to "dead on" at about 5yards, continues to rise to its...

Re: vortex crossfire II scope on crossbow

I have the crossfire 2 1x4 with the V brite reticle on my AR-15. I often thought it would be a good crossbow scope if I ever wanted a single reticle scope. With an HHA it shoud be really good. I like the red dot quite a bit. It is bright but very small allowing for precise aiming.

Re: micro 315

For my 315, 16.5 in Swift Gold Pro, 110 gr. brass insert and 100 gr. Slick Trick, for a total of 370 gr. Do you have a Lumenok in these? GT site says they are only 7.3GPI. 7.3*16.5 = 120.45 insert = 110 BH = 100 total weight = 330 Where's the other 40 grains? 4in vanes and a Lumenok would get you t...

Re: micro 315

I shoot 16" Zombie Slayers, 110gr brass insert 125gr fixed blade and a 28gr Lumenok, 2" feathers. Right around 415 gr. As Joe said, heavy is good, and I'll add "the stiffer the better". High momentum (heavier arrow), high FOC and a stiff shaft all work to improve penetration. You won't be disappoint...

Re: Skin tumor

I shot one with similar stuff on it this year and contacted the wildlife biologist here in NC. I took a bunch of pics and sent them to him and he sent them to the Southeast Cooperative whicvh does a ton of deer research. They are called fibromas and are basically a wart. The meat from a deer with fi...

Re: How do you know when to change strings?

ON the EL strings, check the loops. There is only 1/2 the number of strands in the loop (versus a Flemish) and they may be stretching a bit causing the BH change.

Re: 40 Strand Dacron String

With these 'creepy' strings, how do you know when to change them? Someone else suggested unwinding the string and counting the twists. I forgot how many twists were considered the limit. Not sure if that would work very well on Flemish strings. My Micro has spent over 100 hours cocked so far... I a...

Re: 40 Strand Dacron String

Resetting BH is mostly due to excess wax coming out of the string and/or the braids and what not settling in and tightening up as the string is shot. I'm talking Flemish now. I think both of these factors play a much higher role in why a string stretches than does material creep. But after it's all ...
