    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/

    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.
