I was wondering what other shooters' experiences have been with trying .003 bolts at 100yds? I don't have any .001 bolts, but I was wondering if I should purchase them if I plan to shoot at 100yds, or if sticking with the .003 bolts is just fine.
Ok, thanks for the input.I really see no meaningful difference. Maybe invest in some custom arrows from south shore archery. The Ravin 001s are not any better than the 003s imho.
That's good to know. I don't plan to shoot deer at 100yds, but I would like to occasionally target shoot at that range. I'll plan to stick with the .003's for now.For strictly deer hunting, the .003 are fine. You should be able to hit a softball size circle at 100 yards, although I don't personally take that long of shots at deer. 80 yards is my limit. I shoot South Shore custom Spynal Tapps in my R20, and in my R10, but am using up my .003 lighted Ravin arrows from a couple of years ago in this year's hunt with my R10. I can hit dimes with them fairly consistently out to 110 yards with my setup. Don't think using .003 Ravin arrows is an issue especially at 70 yards and under.
I recently shot 2 groups of same 3 (0.003 " ) arrows to 100 yards. It was my first. I was happy with the results.I was wondering what other shooters' experiences have been with trying .003 bolts at 100yds?

Sounds good, THanks. If you find the videos I'd like to see them. THanks again!I shoot both the 0.003 and 0.001 Ravins.
Cannot say that I have actually compared the 2, both are deadly out to 50 - 60 yards.
A Member on here, Sam something, if I recall correctly, did some comprehensive tests shooting out to 100 with the 0.003 and posted several videos.
His shooting was bang on.
If I was you and doing competitive target shooting, I would use the 0.001.
Otherwise, probably very little difference between the 2 after you culled your 6 or 12 pack.
BTW, I am no expert by any means and if I can find Sam's videos I will post them.
