Default Arrgghhhhhhh........ Didja ever notice...

Whenever you make some bow changes and need to whip up a sight tape, the friggen wind and weather conspire against you to make it as difficult as possible?

I can't be alone here, can I?

Why you gotta rub it in?

Finally managed to get one on this morning. Now my bow is ready for some 3D.

67# C4 at 30.75" draw, CXL 250's weighing 340gr., gotta shoot my chrono as AA says its doing 307fps. yet my 20 to 50 yard mark is .390" with the calipers. It just seems faster than 307. Accurate so far. Shot some 3-4" groups at 50 and I'm just getting going with this new to me C4.

OT2 puts it about 311ish if you have the maxcam, so it close to AA. Interesting ot see what the chron says
