Re: Crossbow Shooters - What are you shooting?

I shoot two Parkers, a Buckbuster 150 and Hurricane 175. Both wear Hawke optics.

I'm getting 360fps from the Hurricane and 317fps from the BB. Both are extremely accurate, enough to aim at seperate dots @30.

Running 20" GT L2s w/ brass inserts and custom 2" vanes for 26% FOC with 125grn heads. Both shoot well less than an inch at 30 with some groups coming in at less than 1/2"(Yes, pulling each arrow before the next).

Been mixing Slick Tricks w/ Spit Fires for BHs. The STs work well, but leave little blood at times. The SFs have lacked in penetration, but cut a darn big hole.

Re: Crossbow Shooters - What are you shooting?

I shoot the Desert Stryker ...It has been upgraded at the factory up to a Stryker 380!! How did this one of a kind crossbow come out you may ask??? Well, I started having trouble with the trigger pull,,it was getting out of hand so hard to pull...My Archery Pro sent it off to the factory,,,6 weeks later it came back,,BAD news it was not fixed,,trigger pull so bad it took two fingers!! Almost!! My Archery Pro kept it until his BowTech rep came in and he let him shoot it!! The BowTech rep took my crossbow with him and a week later I had a one of kind Desert Stryker with a 380 Stryker make up!!! I love it now...It shoots a solid 370-372fps ..Killed several Whitetails with it...A little on the heavy side...I think that the real 380 will be lighted,,,difference in stocks...

175# Horton Legend with one pin and the factory peep sight. 20" Horton Carbon Strike arrows, 498grs with 100gr field points. Horton claimed 300 fps with 400gr arrows. I'll chronograph it just out of curiosity. It's the first crossbow I've ever had or shot.

Noise is subjective, but it seems very quiet with the carbon arrows. Maybe get to hunt with it this fall. 90gr 1 1/4" 3 blade Satellite broadheads.

Meantime, I had to start shooting one arrow per aim point.

Barnett Ghost 350 pkg.; changed over to Parker Red Hot arrows; 125 gr. Muzzy MX3 broadheads; Barnett pkg. scope; Limbsaver split limb inserts. This is my first crossbow and I will work with the basics and change as needed to give improvement.

Excal Equinox with Excal Lumalux Scope over an HHA Precision Optimizer and an Aim Point Accu Draw installed in the stock, a true hybrid if I may say so myself!
