Re: Crossbow Shooters - What are you shooting?

I just last week acquired a Strykezone 350 package. I'm getting geared up for sight-in and testing bolt and broadhead combinations. I'm hoping my 100 grain Thunderheads work so I can interchange broadheads with my compound bow. I'm even going to give my Bear Razorheads a shot or two. As for bolts, I've got the Goldtip Laser II's that came with the package and some Red Hots that my hunting partner gave up on. Hard work man, just plain drudgery.

Re: Crossbow Shooters - What are you shooting?

Finally had a chance to sight in the SZ 350 this morning. Tried the Laser II's that came with it and some Red Hots. For broadheads: Thunderhead 100 grains; and some El Cheapo Eastman heads that are 125 grains and are styled like slick tricks etc...

My wish came true, the thunderheads shot quite well with the Laser II shafts, as did the Eastman heads. The Red Hots were poor with both heads which may be a result of the nocks. They are not half moons but "capture nocks. I may replace them with half moons to see if it helps.
Dead nuts accurate with the Lasers with 2 inch group at 40 yds. I have the scope that came with the package and it works fine. The center circle is dead on from 20 - 30yds and the next circle down shoots perfect at 40 yds. For grins I'm going to see where the next circle places my shot and I expect it shoud be close at 50.

I must say that the trigger is excellent. No creep and breaks as clean or better than my rifle triggers break. With the sucess using the Thunderheads, I can spend my time shooting rather than seeking the holy grail of shaft broadhead combos for this rig





































































. Can't hardly wait until October 1st.
