Easton Bloodline bolts

I just purchased 6 Easton Bloodline bolts. They are extremely accurate. Anyone else use them> I was wondering about penetration on deer.

TAKE UM

Re: Easton Bloodline bolts

No experience with the Bloodlines but I am shooting Easton Full Metal Jackets now. Great arrows. The Bloodlines will be a little light up front and have a lower FOC with a typical 100 grain broadhead. I suspect you will see tad better accuracy with a 125 or 150 grain crossbow broadhead with the Bloodlines.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Re: Easton Bloodline bolts

I checked. The Bloodlines have a 15% FOC with a 100 gr. tip. I think that's right where it should be for good accuracy.

Re: Easton Bloodline bolts

Yes, around 14-15 as you stated. I usually shoot around 18-21 percent. That is just my preference after alot of shooting different arrows and head combos. I found downrange accuracy will usually be better on average.

Re: Easton Bloodline bolts

I tried the 125 gr. tips. They tightened up my group size some. I don't know how much groups size matters if it stays within 3 inches from point of aim.
