How can this be? I am sighted in with 100gr broadheads but today i was going through some old gear of mine and found some 165gr simmons landsharks and decided to shoot one to see how it would fly. I must say it flew very well out of my set up. The thing that has me stumped is there is a 65 gr diffrence between what im currently shooting and the landsharks yet my 10,20 and 30 yard pins are dead on with the 165 grain heads as well? How can that be I would think that much extra weight would bring the point of impact down atleast a few inches if not more.

There are much more technically capable people on this site than me, but my math says the following:

65 grains = 0.00928571429 pounds or 0.148571429 ounces.

Maybe I'm missing something, but that's not a lot of weight to drag down the arrow over 30 yards (depending on the speed of the arrow and it's total weight).

Regards,

On what arrow shaft?

What arrow shaft are you shooting them on Bama, buddy?

How does the FOC come out with the hog heads on?

I have the same thing with arrows stiffer than what most shoot.......and that's why I shoot them. :)

Im shot them on my easton epic 340s.

Haven't taken a look at the FOC yet but seems to be ok. I shot them on my shafts i shoot my expandables on which have very little helical on them. Flew great.
