    Shooting mid 40X 300's with your hunting bow does not constitute a holding problem. While I'm sure you've worked very hard to improve your game I'm just as sure you cannot identify with a hold issue...

    Thanks. I'd be interested in understanding what brought you to that next level. Also, starting with a 50x game is outstanding. Did that repeat regularly or did you find it difficult to repeat?

    My machine shooting X-Impact 500's at lengths of 25.5 to 29" grouped the same out to 80 yards from two different bows. So... your claim that that can't happen is mistaken.
