    Last year I finally broke down and bought some better quality arrows. I went with the Easton FMJs and they're the best arrow I've ever shot. They hold steady and true and I recall saying last year that they're one of the best hunting purchases I've ever made.

    i think easton makes them but bass pro carries a line of red head blackout arrows that are equivellent to fmj.....i hunt with them because of penetration because there are hogs where i hunt deer and i want an arrow that can penetrate hog hide.

    The 5mm fmj's by far are the best, they hit like a freight train

    I shoot the 9.5gpi Easton Axis 340 and love it. Good combo of speed and momentum. Hits hard and gets there quick. Plus they're not crazy expensive.

    I'm really happy with Black Eagle Zombie Slayers.

    Currently shooting CX Maxima Hunters and haven't managed to damage one short of a robin hood. I don't like the price but they're just a darn good arrow. I used to shoot Easton Aftermaths which aren't bad to be honest however between practice, and hunting I went through a dozen in a season. I bough a dozen CX Maxima Hunters 2 seasons ago, I killed 1 with a robin hood, cringed and no longer shoot the same dot at any range. However I still have 11 that seem unbreakable otherwise.

    I'm shooting a kinetic pierce at 301fps @ 390.44 grains; 28.5 DL

    And have ruined fletching out to 25 yards on targets because of the momentum these things have. They pack some punch.
