Default Poundage ?

I am shooting a wildfire and was upping the poundage to get ready for hunting. So my question is how many pounds does it go up pure turn. I cranked mine down 2 turns tonight and started anchoring at my jawbone and had my first ROBINHOOD! It might have cost me but man was I excited. Only been shooting for about 2 months. Thanks for the help.

I am from know on. Just knowing I was able to shoot that consistant of a grouping on 2 arrows back to back. I have my arrows numbered so I can tell if a particular arrow is flying funny. Not so excited about the money just the consistancy. But, we will see how I shoot tomorrow.

I think its pretty much the average for a bow to go up or down 3lbs for one complete turn on both limb bolts.
