    Traditional Archery
    I usually use 425 grain (total) on my scorpyd crossbow, but that goes 460fps so I don't think that will apply with my bare-bow (duh). I prefer to use my 100gr 1 1/2" blade diameter NAP spitfire mechanicals (with 25gr collars) as I've never once had issues with penetration or blade deployment...

    Bowhunting and Bowhunter Showcases
    Took a shot this eve (late CT bow season). I use lighted knocks when I hunt, to help paint a clearer pic of where a shot lands, and I think I have a pretty clear pic of where it landed. Just a smidge high (well below spine though) and a little forward. Didn't pass through, but sunk in pretty...
