Well hopefully your BH's fly pretty close to FP's....and you deffinitely need to have your bow tune and ready for hunting so having your bow sighted for shooting your BH's is a must.... I practice one or two days a week with my FP's and then one or two days with my BH's.... keep us posted on the progression

That is true hopefully the BH flies pretty close to your field points. If they do not you can do several things.
1. Find another BH that does fly similiar to field points.
2. Sight your bow into what your BH flys
3. If the difference is not too extreme modify your shot placement to accomadate the difference in field point and BH .

I think I would go with # 1 myself. Because then you do not have to constantly be concerned as to the way you practice and hte way the broadhead is shooting. If the difference is minimal then you can apply #3 choice. As far as braodheads that fly similar to field points, you can find suggestions on several on this web site. The ones that I personally would suggest is if you like mechanicals is the "Rage" and in the fixed blade is the Slick Tricks 100's Standard Blades. Just my opinion. A lot of people have otehr suggestions as well. Just that these have impressed me

Yes, see below.

Or (which is what you should do)you could tune your bow wo that both field tips and broadheads impact the same spot.

I think you will notice a difference between your broadheads and field points at the longer distances. There is no way your Muzzys will fly exactly the same "aerodynamically" as a field point. I had to change my tape two numbers faster for the Muzzy three blades. I shoot a Switchback [email protected] 64lbs. At the closer distances (30 or less) you probably won't notice the difference. At 60, your point of impact will probably slightly off.

From a properly tuned bow with an arrow flying true, you should be able to hit the same point at any distance as long as the field point and broadhead weigh the same. If they aren't hitting the same spot, you might try to put more fletch on the back of the arrow, or try more helical on the fletchings that you currently use.
