The SWAT X MAG routinely printed within 1/4" of my field points at 25 yards from both Excalibur and Scorpyd crossbows.
How did they fly at longer distances?
I'd be interested in knowing this out to around 75 or 80 yards or so...

Wondering...

Roger that.
Guess I'll have to pick up a pack and give them a whirl.
Letcha know what I discover...

I think many are happy to support Vetran businesses, especially when the components are made in the US.

I managed to bury two SWAT X MAGS into a tree up to the insert and had to use a handsaw to remove them.

I was impressed not one blade bent or broke and remained very sharp.

Now they will have to come up with a Block Target that can withstand the Speed without ripping the fletching off.
As well included some kind of powerful .Jacking system to remove the arrow from the target block.
Could be costly rig to practise with when it comes to arrows.
Easy to crank but hard to remove the arrow after the shoot :shock:

The new Morrel High Roller 21 is your best target from field points to mechanicals to use with the newest Excalibur 2019 releases.
I have tested it at 460 fps ( Scorpyd Aculeus) and found reasonable arrow removal using one hand.

I shoot the grizzly model with a NICE Nikon scope on and some upgraded goodies.

I get pass throughs on everything I shoot 305FPS slick trick broadhead combo at.

All the bow I need to hunt with. I think with the increasing speed and weight too many issues come up with reliability and arrow flight. I won't be getting a new bow in 2019...
