Default New Crossbow

Ok, I got my first Crossbow. It is a Horton Team Realtree HD 175. I got a couple of different arrows to try out and would appreciate peoples feedback.

I have 1/2 dozen of Horton's Carbon arrows, the 3 aluminum arrows that came with it and then 1/2 dozen of the Carbon Express Maxima Hunter arrows. All the arrows are 20" long and I ordered 1/2 dozen of the Magnus Stinger Buzz Cuts to try in 100 gr. Any feedback on the different broadheads would be appreciated.

Thanks
Jake

Congrats on the new crossbow,if the magnus dont work out you
might try either Slick Tricks or American Broabheads,I shoot the
American Liberty and they fly great and hold up going thru the
animal,only coyotes and a fox so far but am pleased with the results!

i spect once yer arrows are sighted in at that weight its just ck'ing out where your BH's actually hit. mech. seems to right on or very close to field pts. fixed BH's including those you can replace blades in may or maynot hit where the fields tips hit. usually you hear of decent BH's in the forum's and by harvest posts. i have used steelheads/slicks/boltcutters to take my game so far.
