850lbs Crossbow DISTANCE TEST

Heavy crossbows can shoot heavy bolts; but how heavy? I have a variety of replica bolts of historic weights going from 65g up to 159g (1000grains to 2450grains) and I shoot them for distance from a 850lbs draw weight crossbow and then compare the results with a 1250lbs crossbow I shot years ago.

The results were entirely predictable.......and perhaps not so much.....

I refer to a couple of previous films I have made and these are they......
