Shot it probably 9x maybe 12x still getting the feel for it completely different everything can’t shoot anything but the ravin bolts rated for the R-500 custom bolts the nocks aren’t holding up the cocking device is way better about the same for cocking but uncocking is way easier I’m trying to get a level on my scope now didn’t have time tonight to shoot it but wasn’t to bad last night as far as accuracy I’m not a fan of the 400 grain bolts but that’s all you get now already lost a insert so now I’m down to 5 bolts

Stop it please. LOL!!
It’s totally different than before Bolkholder sighted it in and I’m 2 1/2 hours away in Michigan but was able to to shoot when I got home no bullshit 2nd shot x at 60 with no level and I know I’m not level I can’t get any of my scope levels won’t fit ordered a thinner vortex witch I like of course $50 I’ve literally never shot there bolts period!!!! And I have no choice now shooting rage trypan probably going to waste one of them at least 70 yards I’m not shoot any farther but I think dialed in you could but don’t want to start that here I’m excited I’ll keep you guys posted

Can't wait. I wouldn't shoot targets under 60 yrds with it. I'd sight in and shoot 60 and farther all day long or the target is going to be ate up fast.

Thanks for sharing.

You will not likely get a level to fit the Ravin scope due to the scope rings being so wide and a short scope barrel.
Go to a level bubble that can be siliconed below the scope or one that mounts to the picatinny rail.

On Ravin's web site they list the arrow as being 500 grain if one uses a 100 grain point. Points are not included.
Unlighted come 6 per package while lighted are 3 per package. Both packages cost the same at $119.99.

Does that scope have a zoom where one does not have to change the speed setting (power setting) like the other
Ravin scope?

Wishing you all the best with the new crossbow.
Take care.

That’s what I’m hoping I really want a heavier bolt witch I have but I was told the nocks don’t hold I think it won’t take long and they’ll figure it out
