Bolt drop at different yards
« on: April 23, 2022, 01:01:56 PM »
Just discovered wife qualifies to use an air bow during our archery season so she may hang up the crossbow
Just curious, how much does a bolt drop from 30-40 yards and from 40-50 yards

 Just curious what brand bolt launcher are you considering, they have speeds from 350 fps to over 500, so there is some variables there.

If things go well plan on buying her a Benjamin. They advertise up to 450 fps. So realistically that tells me maybe 400-410 by the time you add a broadhead. Would consider other rifles as well.
Just trying to get an idea on how these airbows perform.
