My Brother in law stopped by. He told me he bought an archery license in case he could get a decent bow, but did not find one. I offered him my crossbow to use since I am a big fan of my compound. I was telling him about the 4 crosshairs and what ones to use, told him the trigger was tricky, and that I have it roughly sighted in but am not good with it.
"THRUNG" he smacks a perfect bullseye, i am talking a dime sized bullseye. Well that made me feel like an idiot. Ok, beginers luck, lets try again, "THRUNG" Nailed it again. He told me thanks for letting him use it. He is buying some arrows. I gave him (3) VPA Terminators that I had been given last year, that never seen the woods, and only a foam target a few times. These heads are similar to G5 montecs.
The crossbow is a Horton Summit 150, not very fast at all. I told him to keep his shots to under 30 yards, which he said he would.
My question is do you think that the 20" arrows, and 100 grain broadheads will be enough to get the job done. I am new to crossbows, but know that momentum is the key with pentration with a compound. I am worried that the 100 grain will not be as good as the 125 grain.
I will be helping him sight in the broadheads and such. I just can't believe he made me look like a fool with my own weapon. It would hurt so bad if he was a die hard hunter, but the guy gets out maybe 2 times a year with a gun and thats it.
