Crossbow Bolts for Mission

Just purchased a new Mission MDX 360 and love it. Got 3 bolts with the package and purchased 3 more. Guys at the shop said to always use Mission Bolts as it would void the warranty using any others. Really? I love Gold Tips and would like to use them if I could. Any thoughts on this?

Re: Crossbow Bolts for Mission

Nice bow! Mission bows are hard on nocks. The MXB 400 is the nock eater of the bunch. That issue is not so common with the 360. Mission only recommends their aluminum moon nock or moon Burt Coyote Lumenoks because of this.

Thankfully, Lumenoks are available for just about every arrow. If you like Gold Tips, their Laser IV should be ideal in the 360 since they have a bit more spine than the Laser II.

The Mission factory arrows are quite good. I believe they are made by Victory.

Now. Some dealers may still give you grief if you were using another arrow, even with a Lumenok or Mission's aluminum nock if you need warranty work. Keep them Mission arrows around if the need arises.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

I'm shooting 428 gr. 22" Black Eagle Executioners with SK-300 vanes, 92 gr. inserts and Aluminum nocks out of a Sniper-Lite.

Re: Crossbow Bolts for Mission

Sort of on topic here... Anybody know who makes a de-cocking bolt that's compatible with the MXB-360?

Before getting Excalibur bows I always used a discharge target. I used a Morrell, but I think Rinehart and maybe some others make them as well.

Traditions only last if you pass them down to your kids!

Re: Crossbow Bolts for Mission

Is anyone shooting non-aluminum nocks out of their Mission bow? I have a sniper lite and can't imagine it would be an issue to shoot non- aluminum nocks but I also don't want problems. Thanks.

Re: Crossbow Bolts for Mission

Do yourself a favor and get in touch with Jerry at South Shore and order yourself some Spynal Tapp bolts.



I've heard nothing but good things about Jerry. I got my dozen Spynal Tapps last week and just sighted in my Sniper Lite this morning. I normally don't believe the hype online, but Jerry is the man.

Re: Crossbow Bolts for Mission

Do your spynal tapps have aluminum nocks or plastic?

Aluminum nocks...I ordered mine with Jerry over the phone. I believe Mission recommends aluminum nocks.

Re: Crossbow Bolts for Mission

Aubie is correct. Mission recommends half-moon aluminum nocks. Also, in an answer to my own question, that may be of help to you guys, Mission does not recommend the use of de-cocking bolts. They recommend using a discharge target instead.
