    I have been able to achieve 1" groups with my tac 15 at 50 yds and some times at 75 yds, but have not been able to consistently get better than 3 " groups at 50 yds with broadheads. Lots of new broadheads are entering the market, anyone having any luck with them at farther distances ?

    BTW the wasp jackhammers will group OK, just use 2 orings

    I use Rocket Steelhead XL's and two O-rings.
    They are pretty accurate out to 50 yards. It's been a while and I can't quote you a group size at a certain range. However, I was very happy with them last summer, and 33 deer last season were very unhappy with them.

    Based on an old information thread about 2 years ago here on LRH I use Phat Head (125's I think). I shoot using the same one arrow only, and use the HS Optimiser Scope Base and replaced the whisker biscuit with a two prong fall away rest that I forget the name of. That shoots a 3" bullseye out to 80 yards on non-windy days. Can't rest the bow on the front rail to shoot either and get any consistency, so I finally put a bi-pod under the hand rest. It shoots unbelievable out to 100 and 120 yards with a target arrow off a solid rest, but I never backed up that far with the broadhead. If you can't find that old thread I will look up the name of the rest if you want. Hope that helps.

    Just shot a 1 inch group with my just arrived Rocket Steelhead XL's at 50 yards.
    Created a practice broadhead by super glueing the blades in place, this prevents the blades and head from being damaged when deploying


    Thanks for the advice on the Rockets Twanger

    Initial results look prommissing

    We have been directed to shoot the Ramcat 100gr. Both for accuracy[grouping] and killing ability. This is from a PSE rep who is shooting them in his tac 15 with several kills using this broadhead.

    With 4 years of working with the Tacs, I can tell you that you will have to fine tune and fine tune some more to get the best out of your broadheads, I had gone through several hundred of shots with many differ broadheads. It will be very time consuming and expensive buying targets and broadheads if you fail to keep things simple.

    If your Tac is tuned right and you are using compatible broadheads your field tips should be shooting less than 1.5 " from your broadheads at 50 yds .

    Of coarse this may not matter if you are not trying to get the max from your TAC

    Been a while since I have been here. I am still shooting Ramcats with my tac15. Longest kill is 89 yards with complete pass through. Lighted nock saved me some money in recovery of the arrow.
