Re: Horton 175hd realtree bolt question

You should be good with most if not all 20" carbon or aluminum bolts with the HALF-MOON or CRESCENT nocks. If you go aluminum, keep your 125 grain heads. If you go Carbon, you can go down to 1oo grain heads, but the 125ers are still just frine. Carbon Express makes a number of bolts that'll fit your bow just fine. I like a heavier bolt/head combo myself. Makes the bow just a bit quieter and uses more of the draw weight more efficiently and you will actually see an increase in bolt energy with a heavier set up in a lot of cases. My set up for my old Team RT 175 was a 440 grain combo of the Carbon Express Red Hot bolts and a 100 grain Spitfire Pro head.

I really like the Victory arrows with 110 grain brass inserts and 3 inch Fusion vanes in that bow. With a 100 grain head they weigh 422 grains. Deadly accurate too.
