    You're missing my point. I'm referring to the X ring of the 5 spot, not the 3" bull's eye. Use the X ring for the 10 ring. The same pattern is there if you use the bottoms and center.

    For me, the X ring of 5 spot is the same size as the 10 ring on the Vegas. 10s count, Xs don't, not until a shoot off or for events that count it as -1-. If you can get one hole groups going on the 5...

    First, 70 pounds is pushing the limits of a 400 spine arrow unless the arrow is really short. Going with those heavy broadheads adds even more stress.
    And why do you want more arrow weight? I mean,...
