Dalton's Crossbow Wax

Just called Dalton's to order some wax and he asked if I wanted the regular stuff or the crossbow stuff. Of course I ordered the crossbow wax, but is this new? He said everyone at ATA loved it.

Re: Good all around target

I bought this about 3 years ago and just now have to change the cover - and I keep it outside all year. http://www.morrelltargets.com/scripts/prodView.asp?idproduct=25 It is great at stopping FPs. FYI - I shot some Rage 2 blade practice heads at it, and it bent the prtactice blades (they caught on t...

Re: which bolts

I'm looking at Easton FMJ Bolts - mostly for very large game. You can buy them in small quantities - like 1 from Lancaster Archery.

Re: New to Crossbows.

Click on "Selecting The Right Crossbow" on the left of the Excalibur Page. Lots of good info there. At 6'3" he should not have any trouble cocking any of them.

Re: New to Crossbows.

Hi Gary and welcome to the forum. I own 2 Horton Legend compound crossbows . Bought the first one in 1996 and the second for my son a few years later. They have served me pretty well over the years, but I have replaced limbs on both, strings and cables. I have had pro shops put strings on one and sc...

Re: 20" or 22" Bolts

I am looking at Easton Full Metal Jacket shafts and Carbon Express Maxima Hunter KV (Kevlar) shafts for an upcoming Bison hunt.

My guess is these will have a pretty stiff spine so maybe 22" will help a bit. I plan to experiment a bit so I'll try to post my findings here.

Re: 20" or 22" Bolts

Do you cut them for speed? I was wondering if a 22" bolt would stabilize faster because the fletches are farther from the BH.

20" or 22" Bolts

Is there any advantage to shooting 22" bolts vs. the 20" bolts. 20" seems to be the popular choice.

Quality is do...

Re: Heard some news yesterday

Been thinkin' about this one most of the day...........torn between what I would want to do and my faith.....but faith has to win. Take the high road, Ray. Nothing wrong with your plan to get evidence and press charges but retaliation will not help. As you said above, there is no reasoning with some...

Re: Buffalo Setup - Easton FMJ bolts

John ... from what I can tell the Easton FMJ was developed for big game (elk, moose, etc) and is a carbon shaft with an Al shaft around it. Your suggested setup is what I think I am looking for......about 500 grains, 15 - 20% FOC and 300ish fps. I guess I will have to contact Easton or someone to se...

Buffalo Setup - Easton FMJ bolts

Just heard from a pro-staffer working with the outfitter I am hunting bison with in Dec. He suggests Easton Full Metal Jacket Bolts. He is not a crossbow hunter but does everything archery and has had great success with these shafts on a buffalo - complete pass through. Any one have any experience w...

Re: A Couple Techie Questions

I think after all my shooting today I am not too worried. I agree that it is something happening when all the energy gets released into the arrow. I know it is flexing (as we have all seen in some high speed footage somewhere) and I think it is just rubbing a bit on the rail. Accuracy does not seem ...
