RE: 75gr muzzy

75 gr. Muzzy is a great head. Flys real well, and give great penetration due to it's 1" cutting diameter. Real good choice for a light arrow or a low poundage bow.

RE: FMJs?

Certain broadheads, like the G5 Striker, require a ring. But they give them to in the package. Shouldn't need them with field points, Montecs, Muzzys, Rages, etc.

RE: Hornady FHP Bullets

Sounds like it worth trying. Is there a particular primer you use with the BH209? And what sort of charge has been accurate? Should I dump out my Jim Shockey Gold? Thanks.

RE: hog broadhead

Some of the tougher broadheads out there would include the Muzzy Phantom and the G5 Montec. The Montec, in particular, is just about bullet proof.

Yes. They are about perfect for 70 lb. bow, when you use normal (28/29) length arrows with regular 100 gr. tips. But when you drop to 60 lbs, the 400 series (200/250 for CE) are the ones you want.

RE: Spine me some arrows!

At 71 lbs., you are going to want a 340 series arrow if you are going to run a 28" shaft with 100 grain tips. Shorten the shaft to 26 or 27 inches, and you can get by with a 400 series.
