Folks looking for input. I've read through a lot of the posts and still not clear on the weight of arrows. Jesse had a post that said that a 20" Easton Headhunter that comes with the crossbow weigh 310 grains without the field tip. I was almost sure that I also read he mentionend they were 13.8 gpi which would give a 20 inch shaft a weight of 276 grns. I think I've also seen that the Headhunter shaft was 10.5 gpi. Anyone know which it is? If I assume 8 grn for a vane X 3 vanes = 24 grns. Add 12 grns for a nock and 57 grns for aluminum insert and a bit of glue, I calculate the bolt should weigh 374 grns using the 13.8 gpi or 308 using the 10.5 gpi. So, does anyone know if the bolts are 13.8 or 10.5?

Thanks for the input.

Popular Arrow sizes (3 arrow average) all 22" arrows
ALL "weight" is arrow weight, does not include the tip weight.
I did this just so people have some idea as to what size nocks or inserts they may need to look for if they are thinking of changing out any of them (providing they are using
one of the below mentioned arrows). I know I've spend enough buying inserts and nocks, only to find out they don't fit, or are to small. hopefully this helps somebody. if
anybody else has any dinsions to other arrrow, or brands, please post them below.all measurments are +/- .003
Carbon Express CX arrow
Weight= 340 grains
I.D.= .282
O.D.= .341
Wall thickness= .030

Easton Aluminum Razer 2219
Weight=371 grains
Wall thickness=.021
Barnetts Easton Head hunter
Weight=330 grains
Wall Thickness=.025
Barnetts Game Crusher
Weight=372 grains
Wall Thickness=.037
Eastons FMJ (full metal jacket)
Weight=388 grains
Wall Thickness=.030

The Gold Tip Laser IV aluminum Half-Moon Nock O.D. is .270 and the weight is 24 grains. The only arrow above it fit for me was the BarnettGame Crusher.

Good info and I appreciate the input. What about the 20" Headhunters?
