Easton makes good arrows. They hold their tolerances really well.






Practice Practice Practice.

Re: Arrows... What are you shooting?

I shoot Easton Axis FMJ 400's. They are very accurate. They penetrate way deeper on my practice targets. And I've always gotten complete pass thrus on the game I've shot with 60lb draw weight out of my Mathews Drenalin. Plus you will never have to worry of an arrow in the forearm or hand due to a carbon arrow shattering.

Re: Arrows... What are you shooting?

Nice arrow, will get the job done with correct shot placement. I like doubble
lungers myself.

Does not look like your over bowed and can draw the bow without going through all the gyrations that some of the guys on TV go through to get
to full draw. If they would cut 15 lbs off the draw weight, they would have a lot more fun shooting. Of course they would have to add a couple of pins
on the sight to cover the difference in trajectory.

Well 7MM Rem Mag,

That's my bullet of choice, last week at the Long distance range I rang
the 1000 yd. bell twice. first time, real thrill. 7MM Savage 111 long range
hunter.

Practice, Practice Practice

Very well said! I learned about the draw weight the hard way. I learned that I can "kill" the bulls eye all day long practicing with a 70lb draw. But in the field I missed all too often. I was really new to bow hunting and a friend of mine told me to drop to 60lbs and I'd be way more accurate in the field because I would be able to hold the weight longer without trembling. He was absolutely right on. My success since then has been amazing!

And that's so cool that you've pushed your 7mm to 1,000. I've only have hit the steel out to 800 yards so far. I'm hoping to one day soon. But I've actually taken my bow out to start shooting it too, won't be long before October rolls around! Lol

Easton Axis FMJ, 475gr total weight. I had a small chunk of concrete leveling out the front of my target. Maybe 10in long 3in thick and 4in wide. As I was aiming at the target at full draw, I accidentally hit my release to soon and sent the arrow at the bottom of the target and center punched the concrete. My arrow was completly fine and the concrete was broke in half! Excited to try these on elk coming up in September!

I'm not anxious to replicate that shot. Might be ducking shrapnel coming back my way.

Interesting, good luck with the ELK.


Practice Practice and Practice, times coming closer by the day.
