    Well, I was just out practicing with the bow and happened to have a pass through, on the archery target. The Broadhead imbedded itself into the fence behind the target.

    The arrow penetrated a 12 inch thick fiber archery target, then went through 3/4 fence board and then imbedded this far into a very dry 2x4.

    That's what I was guessing. Are you using a weight tube, etc to get up around 750? Who are you hunting with and where?

    After reading about the Kwazulu Natal penetration tests I beefed the arrows up with weight tubes I found on line. With that large broadhead the it sets the arrows at a good FOC, not an extreme one. It sure makes those Arrows stiff.

    Leeukop happened to have some Buffalo herding the Nyala, so I thought I might just protect myself with the bow if I could get it working properly.
