I am very new to crossbows. I just ordered a Barnett BCR Recurve Crossbow (still waiting to receive it). The info recommends using 18"/400 grain bolts.

I need allot of you experts out there to help me out.

What is the ready to shoot package of 5 bolts that Barnett sells weight of each bolt.

Bolts are rated at xx grains per inch. Is that for a blank bolt or one that shooting ready?

Also, does the BCR Crossbow come with attachment points for a sling?

Lastly, what is the best lube for the rails and the best wax for the sting. Speaking of sting...the BCR just came out this spring so I haven't been able to find replacement string that I can have on hand, just in case. Any help here?



Thank you, in advanced.
