I got an email from another PSE tech guy late today. He said if you sort the arrows after shooting and try rotating the errant ones over by 180 degrees you get better groups. This is a little like sorting brass or bullets by ogive dimension so I will try that some time.
My second 60 yard group was 2 inches but had only 1/4 inch of vertical!! Unbelievable. I wonder if I happened to rotate that errant arrow without trying to.
Then on to 70 yards and another boring 2.25 inch group.
I shot just one group at 80 yards and that one was 2.125 inches. It's fun to watch the hits through the scope. Thunk! Thunk! Thunk!
Then home for the night as it was getting dim.
I think I am quickly going to become a dealer.
I have something for you to try.
I used to number all of my arrows with the cock vane or the two cock vanes (4 Fletch) up
1 through 12 or what ever the number of that particular arrows I had because shooting
as much weight as I was, the slightest difference in spine or weight would change the POI.
After you shoot each arrow/bolt "AT Different targets", make note of where each hit the target.
You can then sort them by POI. and the errant arrows can be turned over to see if it makes a
difference. If it does remove the number and place it on the upper side.
I found that this made a huge difference when shooting broad heads and I saved the best ones
for hunting and used the other for warm up shots.
I used a Sharpie permanent marker and after sorting I re numbered in order of preference and
identified the practice arrows.
I hope this helps to get the most from your Tac 15
