Baord convinced me to get some 20 inch arrows in
300 gr Blood sport- 6 arrows
and some
Dicks Decimators 12 arrows and 10 of 2$ Mossy Oaks when I walked in to the right Walmart at 325 gr.

In an early discussion People liked these and some a few dollars more.
Most of the 325 weighed in the 326.3 to .9 and the 300 gr BS came in at 300 to 299.3 gr.

I am leaning toward the swackers since Walmart had the real 100 gr ones on for 5$ per pack. They were out of most other items. Be a hard test for the Cheap head. ;)

Have not got out to shoot yet but was going to shoot with field points and see what the arrows do and turn the nock if needed to find the best grouping.

1. One confusing thing is when people talk about doing FOC which is the better way to measure it? Seems some use nock noch to end of the arrow insert and some measureto the broad head in question. Which is better?

2. With my Ravin scope I would rough sight in at 20 then shoot in 50 yards for serious then go back and shoot in at 20 yard to set the rest of the nuumbers.

3 How many people have the same or close grouping with 100 gr ft and 100 gr Swackers at 50 Yards?

Picked up a pack of NAP Killzone on sale and the screw that hold the action together was not there and the blades fell apart. Will NAP warranty this problem?

Thanks, Jim

Mine hit same POI at 40 yards. Have not shot them at 50. But I was shooting them out of an Excal Matrix and Excals shoot everything well.

Find the balance point on the arrow. The further forward of center the more foc.
My old Vortex shoot the Decimators as good as the factory fletched BEE's out to 45 yards. I have some spinal tapps but haven't tried them yet. I hope they have a loooong shelf life as I have plenty other arrows to shoot first. And that includes shooting both 100 gr. and 125 gr. expandables (multiple brands).
Q#1. I don't think there's a *better* way, there's just a different way. Most use the Easton method which measures just to the insert and has no regard to what's on the end. And some would say that *technically speaking* the length of the point should be included. FOC numbers are just comparison type numbers and have a wide range of percentages where good flight is achieved. The important thing is to pick a method and stick with it so that you can compare your results as you change components.
