    Bought a Mission Charge in early Sept. Does 365. Plenty enough for me. Got my first Xbow turkey kill yesterday and still like to have never found the arrow and had a lighted nock at that! I’m not sure at those 400 + speeds how anyone can find an arrow!?

    Fastest one I know of now is 460 so yes it won't be long.

    We lost two playing around. Even had a metal detector. Gets expensive not hitting a target.

    My dad just bought a Killer Instinct that shoots 380. 380 Hero I believe. He mostly bought it because of how light it is and it was a good deal. Little joker weighs nothing and definitely shoots fast and hard.

    I think this speed craze causes more issues than it’s worth. The string and cables and other mechanical components take a beating. Tuning becomes increasingly difficult. 350 or so is already getting the job done.

    Yessir! Rarely do you read comments in these threads addressing accuracy and shoot-ability. As long as the world catches fire when you pull the trigger, everyone is happy.

    My killer instinct is very accurate.

    Like compounds, they are all good and very accurate these days. In my crew we own or have owned Horton, Barnett, Parker, Inferno, Killer Instinct, Excalibur and Mission. All will get it done. How accurate your shot is is what matters most!

    Just saw a commercial advertising one shooting at 470 ft/s...but it did not look like full length bolts (20-22")...

    Like xbokilla said ^^^^ my 305 ft/s Excalibur Ibex is absolutely lethal to deer (I have killed more deer with it in the last five years than all my firearms collectively)...

    Anyone have a center point crossbow. I'm liking the killer instinct, the cocker is a selling point for me. I have a tenpoint wicked ridge. With a cocking system. If you bought a new crossbow. Let's say under 500.00. What would you buy

    Centerpoint owns Ravin now and they are a nice crossbow. My dad was close to buying one before he went with a Killer Instinct. There’s several nice crossbows under $500. Do you like your Wicked Ridge? Always heard good things about them.

    I love it wish I had a nicer scope. Love the cocking system. It retracks on the butt end
