Looking for Opinions on this little issue???

My friends SZ380, XB-30, Stryker arrows w/brass inserts, stock flecthing, 125 grn tips, firenocks . At 25,35,45 right on, At 55 it is shooting low & to the left. I have not seen him shoot the bow so I don't know what he is doing. Trying to think of some things to look at. Flectchings, Cocking, Nock alignment, Timing, Spin,.
What else would u look at. Confused being 25 to 45 are right on????

I've been testing Bohning 2.25 X-vanes. I'm having good luck so far with them, but I haven't tested them with broadheads yet.

I don't know why it would be dead on at short range and off at longer range. Interesting problem.

This was with field points, I have to have him come over the house so I can check everything over.

Any chance the last crosshair could be etched off alittle. Today when I talked to him, he sais it was low & left by almost 4". I'm going to try & shoot with him this weekend.

Re: Looking for Opinions on this little issue???

I guess I will have to be the one to say it.Unless your speaking of target shooting only, No matter how expensive the X bow is, no matter how fast the X bow shoots, why would you want to ever try to take a an animal at the range of 55 yrds or beyond?? I could be wrong here, but, I thought the whole idea of the X bow forum was to dispel the myth that a crossbow was / is NOT a rifle with a string??
Please advise,
Roland

Re: Looking for Opinions on this little issue???

Best way to check accuracy, form and flight characteristics is to stretch things out a bit. You will see the same advice and discussions in compound forums. Practice long to hunt short. Same thing here.

When it comes to hunting, it is up to the individual to decide what is their maximum range considerig many factors that come into play with bowhunting.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Re: Looking for Opinions on this little issue???

Got everything shooting Great out of both are bows to 55 yards with the Grim Reapers & Field points. He had his bow sighted in at the wrong yardage. His first cross hair was at 23 yards not 25. So at 55 it dropped about 4". So we got his vertical & horizontal all right in now. The limb savers Alpha Shock or Super Quads definitely make a difference in the sound. Mine had them on his didn't. So we went & got him a set. I have the Alpha Shock & They were all out of them so we bought the Super Quad for his. The Super Quad is a Universal set for split limb bows.
The Muzzy 3 Blade 125grn. Shot about 3" low. So unless I sight in for them I will not be using them. May pick up a set of Slick Trick Mags to try also.
It was sighted in at the wrong yardage. I guess when he tried to tape if off w/50' tape he measured off a little bit. So when he got out to 55 yards he was 4'' low on the target. He was sighted in for 23,33 & 43 yards, but then 55 yards. Thats why the other 3 yardages were on & off at 55. When I got there he was shooting for 25 yards but actually on 23 yards, So when we set up for 25 yards, He was already shooting about 1.5" - 2" low
