Course Outline

Your owner’s manual stipulates the minimum arrow size, weight, and length that can be shot from your crossbow.

  • Never shoot an arrow that is lighter in grain weight, spined lighter, or shorter than the manufacturer’s recommendations.
  • Shooting shorter, lighter-weight arrows can damage your crossbow and create a safety hazard.
  • Arrows with a diameter smaller than the grooved track in the barrel of the crossbow will sit too low in the barrel’s flight groove. Conversely, arrows with too large a diameter will sit too high and create misalignment between the nock and bowstring. Such a misalignment can cause a dry-fire or erratic arrow flight.
