bigtim--first thing I would do is stand 10 yards from the target and let one rip,if the arrow is hitting where you want it then step back to 20.Here you can fine tune your pins after you are consistently hitting the same general spot.Move the pin the same direction as the arrow on the target-example-if you are hitting high then raise the pin a little at a time to bring the arrow down to your intended target,if shooting right then move your pin to the right.
Personally get the arrow hitting where yopu want with fieldpoints first-after you are comfortable with the results then try your broadheads.Here some more tuning will be in order like your centershot,nock location etc.

I'm sure I know what he meant, but he best not give up his day job as a follower.[8D]

Bigtime, if you have the 20 yard pin set the others will probably end up almost if not touching each other. What you should really do is slam them all close together and centered the whole gang in you sight bracket housing, assuming you're using a peep. If you're not, nevermind.

I'll even go more generic assuming you don't know anything..lol Obviously your 30 yard pin will be below your 20 yard pin and your 40 yard pin below your 30 yard pin..

On the Excusion your pin gap be anthing from 1/8" to 1/4" apart. Your left/right will be the same as 20.

See here for reference only. Green 20, yellow 30, red 40...

lol--I thought I made it pretty clear.I did make one mistake though and assumed he wasnt real familiar with the sighting in program-My appologies.

I'm sure I know what he meant, but he best not give up his day job as a follower.[8D]
LMAO--without the little smilie there I would have thought you were serious.I am glad you got it all straightened out ---I love sarcasm--it makes you feel so much better dosnt it
