Hello. I am new to crossbow. I am legally blind and have tried a compound bow with no success. I tried a cross bow because it was scoped and I was able to shoot pretty well with it. My question is, what crossbow bolts do yo recommend that or in expensive ? I purchased an SAS Empire terminator crossbow a few years ago to shoot and my dad and I have decided to try and hunt with it this season. It has a 175 pound draw and shoots 265'fps. I am ooking for carbon bolts about 20" long that do not cost an arm and a leg because I am on a budget. If you'll have recommendations for broadheads also I would appreciate it very much and thank you.

First thing, welcome to crossbow shooting and hunting! I understand the "Im on a budget" but arrows are not an area I would skimp on. All arrows are not created equal! For the most part, your bow accuracy will only be as good as the arrows you shoot!

There's many good broad-heads available! Im partial to Viper Tricks, but I also like Spitfire Maxx. Just about any sharp broad-head put through the hear/lung area will result in a very dead deer in short order. Ive killed a good many with crossbows and vertical bows and I can't ever remember one traveling more than 45-50 yds when double lunged. They simply don't go far shot through both lungs!!

I guess what I'm trying to say, you must do your part first!

Jason, welcome to camp! As it’s been said, you don’t really want to skimp on arrows. I did get a box of 6 Victory Archery 20” arrows on sale last year for $20. They fly straight.

Easton XX 75 2219. Aluminum, old school but they shoot good. About 30 bucks for a half dozen. Pretty much all I use.
Good hunting.
