Anyone know if there is a brand/size of brass inserts that will fit inside the Beman Thunderbolt shafts?

Tye: Speaking of weighing down how much speed do we lose already
with the heavier Beman Thunderbolts?

Right now I have my speed ring set at the 5 on 275... shooting 20" Beman Thunderbolts with plastic nocks and 125gr broadheads.

Tye:

Many thanks for the information. I also shoot a phoenix bow, but I use
the bolts with an aluminum plug at the nock end. So this would slow
it down a tad more I presume.

A rule of thumb I've read and seems pretty close is 1 fps for every 5 gr change in arrow weight.
