I shot muzzies for one season, nothing wrong with them. This year im going to try Grim Reaper expandables.

Im not sure if your new to bowhunting, but i always sight from the treestand. DONT try to sight your crossbow from the ground and then shoot at an animal. I made that mistake once. When I sighted it form the ground I was shooting less than one inch groups at 25 yards, when I took it up the stand and shot I was shooting one inch groups but they were 6 inches high. And always shoot the practice tips included with your broadhead or expandable.

In theory if your shooting 100 grain field tips, and 100 grain broadheads they should hit the same mark. I have found out different. I sighted with 100 grain field tips, then tested the practice tip that came with my Grim Reaper expandables. The field tips were dead on at 25 and practice grim Reaper tip was about 2" low. So I adjusted the scope for the Grim Reapers.
