I was deleting pics just a little bit ago and came across a old target I shot. I’m not sure if it was last year or a year or 2 ago. But I’m sure it was shot with the NAP FOC and at 50 yds because it’s rare my blob sets any where but 50 yds.

Anyway I shot a target a few days ago just incase I took the bow Turkey hunting.
Here’s the old target

Wood Plant Dishware Serveware Sink

And here’s the one from the other day.

All most the same groups at least a year apart maybe longer. This is what makes it hard for me to change to much.

That’s some mighty fine broadhead shootin’!
It's hardly ever i shoot field tips. I glue up a FOC and i have a Swat Max glued up. Several FOC's and i think 2 Swats.

Id stager a pretty accurate guess the old target was shot one arrow. Then a different arrow next day maybe one in the morning and one in the evening the day after that. Or i might have skipped a day or two before or after. And i'm sure i shot both 400's at that target, and left them cocked for hours before i shot. That's my final test i try and make it as close to what i might do hunting as i can.

Been doing this for years. The Excaliburs would do this also :). Heck they probably all well.

i.m.o. a five shot group says allot.
thats great shooting and a real good equipment match up.

When it comes to shooting long range its easy to get 2 or maybe even 3 touching and then pull the rest.

But if you can put down a good 5 shot group even with one arrow thats really good.
Doing it with a broad head is even harder.


then toss in 480 f.p.s or more it may never happen. I guess this will need to be proven out yet.
I think broad head selection on there 500 f.p.s bows could end up being a real challenge

Nice shooting! No arrow damage or shooting one and pulling?
I shoot one walk out and pull it. Then put the broadhead on another arrow then shoot it once. I get more exercise and i think improves my first shot accuracy. Plus these arrow are expensive.

Shooting like that puts pressure on me to keep the group going. And i use a very simple not to solid rest. That kinda matches what i will be doing hunting. If you can't match that accuracy in the woods to me it's not worth much.

Makes sense, I just shoot at mutiple bullseye targets, if not I'd have to carefully place my arrows around the bullseye! Ha!

I usually just waist a pack of broad heads. See everyone can learn on here no matter how much you think you know.

Yeah No1 I learn something new everyday. I biggest problem is I forget it in about a day and a half. Then I get to learn it all over again lol.

I run one thru it’s paces I get kinda mean with it. Then if it’s still straight I glue it up and there’s my practice head. And over the years in the case of the FOC. I end up with a few glued up.

Easton was the pizza eater for a long time that’s all he would eat. Now he’s into bread sticks and chicken nuggets and popcorn lol.

He will be 7 I might see if he wants to shoot a little bit this summer. Can’t wait to take him out and let him kill a Buck.

thanks guys

Good point. I hadn't considered speed affecting my mechanicals being capable of staying closed during flight. Guess I have some expensive testing to do with my new Nitro. I usually use Grim Reapers, but that might not work at 440-470 fps
