Re: draw weight

Probably very close. Arrows for both are fairly similar in weight traveling at roughly the same speed.

All depends on the speed and weight of your arrow.

I suspect that your crossbow has the KE advantage by 10 or so pounds.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!
