need help

Well I have my Parker tornado xbox dead on at 20 yards.. I don't have a yard to shoot so I have to go to a friends or where ever.. And i never thought to shoot past 20 yards. I have the multi recticle scope with the different "pins inside the scope". Do you think my 30 yard "pin" or line as it appears in the scope is on at 30? and the main question i need answered.. Is im shooting a parker tornado.. With parker hunter arrows, and parker red hot broad heads.. But i don't have one, and don't know anyone with a target you can shoot broad heads into.. Is there something i might have laying around i could shoot at that won't destroy the arrow, or make the broad head so dull i can hunt with it?!?! thanks for any help

You and tequila make me crazy!

Re: need help

My experience with Parkers is that their multi reticle scopes are pretty close to 20/30/40/50 provided that you are shooting close to factory spec arrow weights and broadheads.

With that being said, you don't know until you shoot farther out which also may bring to light some slight adjustments to windage and/or elevation that could be made. I would never take a shot at game at a range that hasn't been practiced at.

When shooting broadheads, once they are shot, it is recommended that the blades be resharpended or replaced before hunting.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Re: need help

Just sighted my Tornado in a couple weeks ago. I'm shooting all Parker equipment. Sighted in at 20yrds and then shot several shots at 30, 40 and 50. Was shooting indoors so no wind to deal with. Once sighted in at 20 it was good at 30, 40 and 50 with no adjustments needed.

Re: need help

You will be very close to 20,30,40 and 50 with Parker Hunter arrows. The right and left will most likely need tweaked a little when you shoot longer ranges.
