Default FMJs?

I just purchased a 1/2 dozen FMJs and was wondering if I need any kind of adaptor ring or anything like that for field points and broadheads? I don't have any experience with the hidden insert. Thanks!

Not too sure I understand the problem. There shouldn't be any adapter between the hidden insert and the field point or broadhead. Are you sure the insert is installed?

No they are not needed just screw in the Fp/Bh

Thanks guys. I just wasn't sure if I needed to put anything between the points and arrow to protect the end of the shaft.

If you are using a snap open mech style broadhead, I'd reccomend the broadhead adapter ring- the force from the blades opening will ding up an insert or even trash an Axis or other style head where the blades make contact directly with the shaft.

Thanks. I am using RazorTricks.

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.
