My friend shot his deer with a a 2 bladed 125 gr. Rage broadhead out of a Barnett Predator crossbow. The deer fell over within 50 yards.

I shot this buck using grim reapers. (dressed out at 160 lbs) They fly just like my field points and do not open until contact with the deer. The arrow passed thru and I found it 40 yards past the deer I shot. I also put a doe down that a buddy had shot and again had no problem.

Yes they do. I use Rage 2" 2 blade. Rage came out with a 1-3/4" two blade this year.
My xbow shoots over 390fps so I have no problems with complete passthroughs with the 2". They leave a hell of a whole in them too.
This is a picture of the buck I shot last year. Rage in the cage.
