Re: Arrow Lethality - Great Info Here

I’ve met Ed and spent fair amount of time discussing his work with him. He knows his stuff and I doubt there is anyone on earth that has done as much field testing and documentation in the archery field. He is a big fan of heavy foc and big broadheads. I have been using 700gr shaft/head in my 400 Bu...

Re: What arrows (Heavy) to get for BD 440?

I’m shooting 700gr arrows out of my 400BD and they fly great. Using a 2219 with a carbon express 4000 shat inside it. The CE 4000 has a 100gr brass insert as well, 100gr G5 Striker to top it off.

Re: TRYING HEAVIER BOLTS

I use a 2219 aluminum shaft with a Carbon Express 4000 carbon shaft glued inside the 2219. A 100 gun brass insert up front and 100 gr G5 striker gets me 700gr total. Takes a lot of noise away and hits like sledgehammer

Re: I’m not liking my new Zombie Slayers

My take is Zombies plus your 150 gr broadhead weigh considerably more than your old arrow. So your speed has dropped 20-30 fops (zombies have a brass insert up front). Try dropping down to a 100grn broad head and you should be where you want.

Re: Off season Storeage of Excalibur 380

Take the air brakes off to release pressure on rubber pads.They will last much longer. I always pull strings when done for season.

Re: Science question

It's the speed and weight of the projectile - has zero to do with launch method.

Re: 380 or 400

I own both, 1 x 400 Bd and 2 x380 - For only one bow I'd go 380 for sure - it does it all and is maybe 10fps at best behind the BD. You cannot go wrong with either one but that's my 10 cents.

Re: 2017 Ontario Moose Hunt - 2 bulls down

My buddy Angelo took the big bull using my 380. There were two of us calling on this one and I made the final calls that closed the deal. It takes us about two hours total to skin, quarter, bag and then paddle out the meat to our pilot that picks it up. We call him when moose is downed and arrange p...
