Horton Storm and 125gr broadheads

I upgraded from a wicked ridge invader to the Horton Storm this month. I used 125 gr ramcat and spitfire maxx BH's on the invader. Tried using them on the storm and it didn't work very well. Arrows were all over the place.

Got a pack of 100gr ramcats and got better results. I also got my arrows spine matched and refletched accordingly. Not sure which made the most difference. Didn't have time yet to try the 125's on the new arrows.



Forgot this...using Gold Tip 425 Ballistic Tip Arrows with brass inserts...the +-.005 version.



Anyone using 125gr on the storm with good results?

Re: Horton Storm and 125gr broadheads

I spent quite a bit of time working on an arrow for the Storm RDX. I will say it's a very picky crossbow when it comes to it's arrows. I finally got it figured out and have been having great results with it. I use Victory 20 inch, omni nock, 3 degree offset and spined arrows (I found that spine matching on the bow worked better as did capture nocks) 110 brass insert and vane tec 2.88 vanes. If all that isn't you thing I sell them for $6 each.

What broadheads? 100/125? What is the arrow weight with the broadhead?
Thanks Arrowhead!!!

Re: Horton Storm and 125gr broadheads

If you are using the supplied arrows I would stay with a 125 grain head. Victory uses a 80 grain insert with the factory supplied arrows. In my customs, I use a 110 grain insert and a 100 grain head. Total weight is 418 grains with the 100 grain head and my arrow. I was getting about 8 inches of drop from 20-40 yards with that arrow. I want to try the new Bohning Bolt vanes on this bow. I suspect they will be an improvement over the Vane Tec vanes.
