    this x-force is costing me arrows.
    shooting axis 340 at 20 yards (still doing some tuning) it went threw the bag target and traveled another 10 yards and went threw a horse panel that is
    made of 18 ga. tubing only thing that kept it from going all the way threw it was the fletching. I wanted to get a pic of it but my 6 year old little angle went and broke it of the rest of the way and pulled it out lol she was just trying to help

    Sounds like you definately need a new bow target. I'm using a 3 1/2 year old Morrell Outdoor Range and I can shoot my OG at it from about a foot away and I still only get about 6 inches of penetration (if that)

    The new ones aren't as good as the old ones but there is still no way you can get a full pass through (w/ veins attached)

    Stop shooting you arrow in the exact same hole everytime and you wont get passthru's so much. Just shoot them about an 1/8 in apart. Same advice to keep from robinhooding your arrows all the time

    Its a good thing there wasnt any livestock in there. I am surprised that is all the stuffing that came out with the arrow. The first pass through I got on my bag pulled out a great big clump of stuffing with it:mad:
