Been a trad archer for over 12 years and have made a few board bows, decided to try crossbows and im loving it much more so far!
My question is i have no intrest in heavy crossbows, so 70# will be my max and i feel safe with that number tillering out a wood prod 36in or so in length. Will this weight allow bolts to fly up to 40 yards and stick in 3d targets, if not, whats the minimum givin my stated requirements of weight and prod material. I can use carbon bolts if needed, thats not an issue, tho making them will be ALOT more fun.
Oh, forgot, my ugly first crossbow was 53lbs at 12 in draw, with a 2x4 stock, and 36in red oak prod, and a top mounted level type trigger! ugly as sin but it works...kinda, i already see ALOT of improvements heh.
