Re: Matrix 330

Bought one for my son 5-6yrs ago.he's in the army now so I've decided to hunt with it this fall and let the m355 take a break.always thought it was an extremely smooth shooting xbow.

Re: 308 short for Russian Boar

Know your distance limits and it shouldn't be a problem.alot of big game been killed with a vixen and they shoot around 280fps.i've killed black bear and elk with a long bow.its all about shot placement and sharp broadheads

Cutting rail down

was looking for a micro 315 but came across a killer deal on a 335.I'm a machinist by trade and am thinking about cutting rail down myself and relocating the holes.from everything I've read the only difference between the two is a 1/2".does this sound right.

Re: Cold wave and animal survival

Read an article about how cickadee's crawl into little knot holes and go into a form of suspended animation every night.it lowers their body temp by 15°. One of my favorite critters to watch while out hunting.

Re: matrix 330 or 355

I have both.bought 330 for my son.can't go wrong with either.haven't heard about any limb problems on the 355.330 is a little smoother but the 355 definitely hits harder.355 is my go to xbow.recommend you put ADF and baby bumpers on which ever one you pick
