Don't forget; pix for each individual shot with full report to follow, or it didn't happen.

Ordered a set of precision Tapps with 3 1/4” Varetec orange hens and a white cock vane last fall from Tapp Nation for my R10. Weighed them and then numbered them by weight. I’ve only shot #1 as I really didn’t get a chance to shoot the set but I’m sure they’ll be fine.

I haven’t shot them all but I know they’re the best. Can’t wait. Hopefully the weather will get better before long. Going to use the R10 for turkey this season. I have some NAP Gobbler Getters and I know they’ll shoot perfectly with these precision made Tapps. I’m pumped.

tp, what do the arrows weigh?? Or did i miss it some place along the line.
With Jerry’s SS 100 gr bullet points they’re about 423 grains. The factory Ravins were around 400 and my R10 shot 412 did right out of the box.

The 423 gr Orange Hens shot 399 FPS. I haven’t ran the chronology with the new 2 cable system yet. I hope to on Tuesday.

Tuesday’s 39º isn’t looking so good - 16 mph winds out of the west. I’m shielded all around in my driveway except for a 6’ opening between the porch and garage - on the west side. :(
Not looking good this week.

Cant shoot in the city limits per Crossbow Nation Rules...!

:unsure:
I caught H one time when some liberal turned me in for shooting my compound in the driveway into the garage and a cop pulled in and said no discharge of weapons within the city limits.

I got news for them. If a robber breaks into my house I’ll be discharging every weapon I can carry.

Man, can’t imagine that. Heck I fire my 300wsm off my front porch sometimes...... country life has its advantages, but they are shrinking daily.

The red arrow is the 20 yard shot to my target at the back of the extension at the rear of the garage. I park my truck in the driveway behind my shooting bench and sled to hide it. I can sneak back to 25 yards and be just inside the front of the house. At 30 yards I’m at the edge of the front deck exposed to everybody.

That’s my red F150 supercab parked in front of my house !

No shooting today!

Beautiful 43º but that 17 mph wind is a tad too much.
