Never got a good answer for this question. How would you build a good target that doesn't ruin your broadheads? I'm using a Compound Bow (70 lbs) and G5 Montec broadheads (100 grains).

Designate one broad head and use it for target only . Or go buy the practice heads... no reason to use your hunting broad heads for target practice .

I use medium density foam blocks.
You will have to resharpen every one you shoot into the foam before you go hunting.

Great idea about designating practice broad heads though.

Broad heads will always damage your target just one of those things you can't get away from I also use foam and one bradhead that becomes my practice tip

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
