    Hi, I have an older carbon express cx2 crossbow with a nikon bolt xr scope. I have previously been using some carbon express "hot rod" bolts. I got some new bolts today that are the carbon express "mayhem". well with the new bolts I am shooting several feet left and have run out of room to adjust the scope. if i go back to the hot rods i can zero back in and maintain a 3" group. any idea what my issue may be? I have been shooting this bow for a few years, but I stocked up on bolts back then and have used the same ones since(only have 2 left). i am just now trying to get some new bolts.... opening weekend saturday....neeed help pleeeeeeaaaassseee :hail:

    I tried both. I am using 100g. field points and 100g 3 blade fixed montec broadheads.

    i tried every bolt in the new pack.. they all shoot left. same elevation though.

    well, it ended up being that the fletching on the new bolts was too tall and was dragging on the bottom of the rail. shorter fletching resolved the problem
