    I'm just getting back into archery after not shooting my recurve for about 18 years.It's a Fred Bear Kodiak Mag. 50#.
    1. Aluminum arrows still OK ?
    2. The nocks of my old arrows seem to be tight on the new bow string, should this be or should the arrow nock be loose ?
    3. What are the distances on a 3-D range ? (max/min)
    thanks.....j2farm

    Yes, Aluminum arrows are fine, but they need to be the right size and spine.

    If your nocks fit too tightly, take your bow to a pro shop and have them re-serve the string with smaller serving material.

    3D ranges vary depending on your class. Usually, traditional classes are 20 yards and under.
