Did some shopping

One of my buddies wanted a couple bows I had. With some of the money I bought a Limb Driver rest and some Easton Hex shafts. Bought a dozen and a half. They are a whole lot quicker than what my FMJ's. I don't have a clue what the fps are.

I don't see the FPS as a issue with a bow unless you are stretching the range. As with a rifle round, practice counts. We used to place gallon sized jugs at expected ranges we anticipated game to appear back in the days of recurves.  Hope that helps!   :)

Yeah the speed doesn't matter to much with me, I still kept one of my longbows. I was just saying since I was trying to zero my sights I could tell it was much quicker than when I was using the Easton fmj's.

Hey Chris, maybe these arrows are a bit lighter than the FMJs.  You'll have to adjust to the arrow weight you are shooting.
