This year was pretty hard on my cross bow bolts, :ibtl:, and I need to replace them. I used easton full metal jackets 20". What's everybody using?

Easton Bloodrunners 20" and I used to use the FMJ but they are so solid I could have hunted water buffalo with them. They last!

What I didn't like about the FMJ bolts is that they dented. I would like to get a more durable bolt and appreciate the responses.

I'm going to set up the bloodrunners with an illuminated nock and a 125 grain
broadhead but not sure if i'm going mechanical or fixed.
Strykezone 380

DD1, I went into the Easton web and the bloodrunners aren't listed. Is it possible that they were 2012 models and now discontinued?

You are correct. My old head translated Bloodline to blood runner. I hope your head never gets this way, CRS can't remember S____.
They are Blood Line, so sorry. Tomorrow I'm going over to the indoor range. I hope I shoot better than I remember! LOL
I'll let you know :no:

I changed back to carbon express bolts yesterday,
topped them with 100 gr 2" cut rocket Hammer heads
That set up let's me use my scope lines 20 30 40 50 yards
All will hit dead on
I had the heavy hit bolts last year , they would fall way short at 50 yards

20"Bloodlines. Im new to crossbows and carbon bolts/arrows. But these fell in the parameters of my crossbow. So far i really lik'em. 100gr viper venom heads. 4 deer so far. Long as i do my part its a good combo

Is there a most popular length of bolts? Some around here swear by 22"'s?
