Re: Mission crossbow

Mission makes very nice crossbows. If you think about it, most compound vertical shooters are shooting less than 320fps and they are shooting at and killing game at 60 yards and beyond.

With that said, I like the MXB360 in the Mission lineup. It is very fast, but still relatively quiet and easy on itself.

I have the MXB400. It is a speed burner but comes with it's unique concerns because of it's speed.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

I own a MX 360 very fast ,reliable and relatively quiet. Light compact design . Easy to handle in treestand or blind. With a BDC reticle scope 60 yards in easily achieved.

Re: Mission crossbow

I own a 320. It will shoot out to 50 yards no problem. I personally don't shoot that far while hunting though. I went with the 320 due to it being so compact and I mainly hunt out of a tree stand and its smaller dimensions sure are nice while you are 20 feet up.

Re: Mission crossbow

I just bought the "Sniper Lite" and at 310 fps, I feel that is plenty of speed.

I haven't shot it yet as I'm waiting on Jerry to delivery my bolts.

Re: Mission crossbow

Try the Mission Sniper-Lite and the Excal Micro 335 Nightmare. My two favorites.
