Broken xbow scope and bolts

Good morning. the barnett scope that came on my barnett destroyer is off.. something seized up in the windage adjustments. cant center at 20 yards. So in a fit of rage, i took it off and threw it in the trash. Ordered a tru glo with IR to replace it.

I also lost 2 headhunter 20" bolts that came with it, and according to easton/barnett they are supposed to weigh 311.6 without field points.

I just bought a bunch of the bloodsport witness bolts and they are just a tad lighter around 300 grains. should i be looking at a 125 head or stick with 100

thanks in advance

Re: Broken xbow scope and bolts

It depends.
The bolts you bought. Are the 300 gr with aluminum or brass inserts?

If there aluminum get 125 heads.
If there brass try the 100 heads.
FOC can make a big difference.
Of course you'll have to resign the bow in either way.

Re: Broken xbow scope and bolts

thanks for the suggestions.. ended up putting a tru glo on it, and the windage was maxed out due to the scope rail being machined from the factory incorrectly. (i was told this is a barnett typical issue)

At the local bow shop they adjusted a timing cam on the crossbow to make it pull left, and used a shim to help with my rise and fall adjustment..

20 bolts last night drilling the center from 20-40 yards.

Should be good enough for this season until i can get it fixed by barnett.

oh and 125 grain bolts did the trick.
