    Crossbow bullet bolt's

    Hello all on here i have been developing these very innexpensive crossbow bullet bolt's for several year's now and they are very cost effective crossbow projectile's.Here is an older video of the handmade prototype Mantis Crossforce with the fitted bullet rail in operation shooting a tubular carbon bodied crossbow bullet bolt of 400 grn's. https://www.facebook.com/phil.talisman/videos/4727251512435/

    Also here are the brand new prototype rifled crossbow bullet bolt's that i have yet to try out fully they are molded from resin and should be very accurate as they will spin in flight.

    Yes, I have made similar bolts in wood.  No fletching, just slotted vanes in the shaft.  Mind didn't spin, but they flew well.  A friend made a set of spinning bolts of wood... again grooves cut in the shaft, to induce spin.  They were short, with heavy heads.  Flew beautifully.  Payne Gallwey's "Book of the Crossbow' has similar bolts illustrated... sometimes called 'slurbolts'  Try 'em, you may like them... though they do disappear into a target under the grass quite well.  I painted mine in bright colors.
