    Hey guys! New member here. Just getting back into hunting and looking to purchase my first crossbow. Kind of had my eyes and heart set on a KI Ripper 415.

    Anyone happen to know when Killer Instinct’s new Slayer SWAT Crossbow Case is going to be available? Last I heard from KI was Nov. 1 and no one had answered my email all month.
  4. Killer Instinct Crossbows
    Last week was a good week it turns out. Yesterday I took this buck in my first set in a climber on a ridge top whiteoak plateau. My trailcam showed buck activity so I decided it was time. He came to me about 6pm providing me a broadsided shot at 12 yards. The Ripper 415 delivered the Spitfire...

    I keep hearing get heavier bolts so the 400 FPS bows don’t blow up. The bow really slows down with that much weight so I’m wondering if it’s overkill and I should go back to 125 grain tips vs 150 grain… but I also don’t want the bow to break.

    It's just under 3 weeks until archery open day season. I did a preparation check yesterday with my Ripper 415 and Victory Xbolt arrows at 50 yards to determine accuracy. I shot 4 groups of 3 arrows then recorded the point of impact from aim point and the direction of variation. This way I could...

    On Monday I shot my Ripper 415 crossbow for accuracy check 80 yards. I attached the results as shown in the order of the photos and shots with my setup/range shown also. The weather was great at mid 80 degrees with a 10-15 mph NE wind. The draw I shoot from was protected from the wind. Notice...
  9. Advanced Crossbow Shooting and Tuning
    When I first used my new Ripper sled cocker I noticed it was designed to center over the rail and left about 1/4" play of each side. Also I noticed the anchor post fit was lose enough to allow the crank body to turn approximated 5 degree towards the side which the crank handles was pulling. My...

    🏹🎯 Recently I was challenged/inspired to try 100 yard crossbow target shooting. I started short range (40 yds) with tuning my crossbow and working up each 10 yards increment checking to make sure my Hawke XB30 scope was dialed in to each. As I shot more my skills improved as my equipment...
  11. Killer Instinct Crossbows
    Hi everyone, Since it was August 2 the last time I shoot my Ripper 415 when I made the 115 yard shoot I wanted to follow up for an accuracy check. So yesterday I shoot my crossbow at 80 yards and 100 yards to see if zero was held during the idle time. This might sound odd as it is to me. Not...

  20. Killer Instinct Crossbows
    9.5 is on the table . Going to start this weekend on it seeing what screws we can replace in titanium. Ti broad bands also look to be going on it. Wish the bow had a barrel nut for limb bolts and not such a void towards cam on split limb. Just my thoughts .
