    Re: Long range arrows???

    I have shot ACC 360's since they have been around, long time. The FMJ IS basically same product but built with alum. on the outside. Several of my friend shoot comp. My hunting buddy is MT state recurve champ, but he can shoot 6'' group at 100 yard with compound. I see thess guys go back and forth all time blazer vs 4'', Fmj vs ACC. tHEY ARE ALL GOOD product. I set up a lighter bow for stands and speed goats 62# allegaince,45/70 cheeta 335 gr. I punched these in one side and out the other on elk also. But normal elk set up 410 gr ACC, tipped w/ steel force fat head.The newer fast bows may need stiffer spine, my buddy had to go to371 for his broadheads out of a Destroyer, Im shooting superslims out of mine but less weight and shorter draw. I shot 21 animals one year with the ACC set up up to 1000# eland.When I was getting set for that hunt, I shot my bow every day for a year and most for the next 6 mnths. Cold first shot, I would shoot a 5'' BUTTER dish lid at 50 yards.Start my shooting that way.PRACTICE, PRACTICE

    I know I'm late on the post but I shoot semi pro fita and nfaa, and u need the smallest possible shaft you can find and put a decent amount of foc on it. The smaller diameter is gonna cut thru wind better and maintain speed longer. Its also gonna increase you ke because your focusing it on a much smaller area. For the money I would shoot Easton Axis arrows, with the CORRECT SPINE. The shaft is really small and I can get basketball groups at 100 with a bowhunting setup. I didn have enough pin nocks to shoot my X10's at the state fita shoot so I shot my Axis 400's and won with a 889 dropping all of my points at 50 and 40

    carbon express maxima hunters will add 20 yards to your effective kill.a good fall away rest will add another 20 yards. I have used acc,gold tip and about every thing out there. I practice to 140 yards,first pin at 40 and last at 130. I shoot rage and muzzys depending on what Im hunting although I have had great luck with wasp jack hammers. The carbon express really shoot the fixed blade heads well and the blazer vanes will stabilize the fixed blade broadheads just fine. I used acc with a internal weight to kill a cape buffalo with a 2 bladed steel force,another good head. Challenge yourself to the long distances,it will make you much better at the 60 to 100 yard shots,If you need more pins,look and the sonoran sight,my sight has 10 pins,my 2 cents
