I'm building 3 arrows for Turkey hunting. I'm using 125 grain magnus bullheads. Bow is Hoyt Carbon element at 29" 60 #. Full length Rampage 300 spine arrows. i know these bullheads like stiff arrows but I have a choice of using 50 grain, 110 or 150 grain inserts. I figure a balance between stiffness and FOC for accuracy. Anybody have any experience with these setups would be appreciated. :wink:

I would use the standard 12 gr inserts, no need to go heavy, excessive FOC does not increase accuracy

Use hot glue and try em all, high foc may help steer those suckers?

4 4 inch heical feathers work best!

Bullheads steer very nicely, easier to tune than most coc heads. My deer arrows are in the 22-23% FOC range. My turkey arrows are around 9% and fly like darts. Ive found keeping the shaft as stiff as possible is your best bet

Wouldn’t hurt to try something different I guess but they tune just fine for me with the standard inserts. The reason they use such a stiff shaft is that they’re made so long for clearance out front.

^^^This right here is the answer. Get the stiffest spine you can get and you won't have any issues.

Thanks for the replies. I am using Rampages .300 full length. Over the last few days I shot it out of my 3 bows and it seems my Carbon Element at 54 # 29" shoot best. Next comes the bullhead and a pillow.
