Sorry if this has been asked many times before... I have hunted with a compound bow and do not know much about crossbows. My young daughter has decided to take up shooting and hunting. To make things easier on her and my wallet I purchased a crossbow for her and her sister to share. Cheaper then buying new compounds that fit them every year!! I would like to purchase a few bolts for each girl with their choice of vane color. How do I know what bolts to use? The cross bow says to used 20" bolts and it is a re curve style with 175# limbs. Any help would be appreciated as this is all new to me.
I know it is not fancy but the crossbow is an Arrow Precision Inferno Fury. It came with 16" bolts with 1/2 moon nocks. Are the 16" bolts ok or could I improve performance with a different bolt? We shot the bow and it is pretty good accuracy wise out to 30 yards but is very slow... I know that doesn't really matter but would it help to switch to different bolts for hunting?
I picked one them up for like $50 for my son...it is shooting 20" eastons with 125 grain field points...i am satisfied how it shoots...i wouldnt shoot more than 30 yrds with it....still have to use shooting sticks with it so he can hold it up and steady
Come and try to take my guns!.you might meet my precious metal collection!
The Inferno Fury loves a 17 inch arrow with a 92 grain brass insert and four inch vanes. I've made these up for the one I keep here and it's amazing how accurate that bow can be. Keep your shots close and you will be fine.
No matter what you do Twinker they will be loud compared to your compound. There are some things that you can do to help quiet it, but it will still be loud. The bad thing is some of those things also makes you lose speed.
Traditions only last if you pass them down to your kids!
