100 gr vs. 125 gr broadheads

I am going to be new to crossbow hunting as I am getting a crossbow for Christmas (Ten Point Turbo). I'm in the process of choosing broadheads for deer. But, what grain?

My question is what are the pros and cons of 100gr vs. 125 gr broadheads? How do they perform on game, accuracy, longer range possibilities, etc.

The broadheads I am leaning towards are Slick Trick Magnums.

The Slick Trick magnums are great heads. They will most likely go a little right and low from your field points. If you are using the Ten Point arrows, I would opt for the 125 grain heads. If you are using custom arrows with brass inserts, the 100 would be the better choice.

Re: 100 gr vs. 125 gr broadheads

Shoot the broadhead you intend to hunt with, make adjustments so you are dead on then replace the blades with new ones and ALWAYS use that same head until you harvest a deer and do it all over again. I do this with Slick Trick Magnums I have shot 26 deer straight without losing one but I noticed no 2 arrows shoot exactly the same I mean hitting a bullseye at 20 on a 1" dot all the time but if you sight that one arrow you plan on hunting with it will be right on I carry 3 arrows incase I need to finish an animal off but never hunt with an arrow that has not been sighted in JMO. Excalbur Exocet 200, Gold Tip 2, Slick Trick 100 Magnum and Tracer Nock

Re: 100 gr vs. 125 gr broadheads

I use muzzy's 3 blades 100 gr. I been hearing that these broadheads fly good out of crossbows. i am a little different when it comes to field tips weight and broadheads weight. I shoot 125 gr field tips and 100 gr muzzys. there is no adjustment of the scope when i shoot from field tips to broadheads. they fly the same as my parker buck buster and muzzy broadheads took down it's first buck this season. deadly combo.

Beretta 92FS is my side kick.
