    If your field points are still on, I'd say maybe your Halon just doesn't like the Killzones? I've shot a lot of different BH's through my old bow and some shot good and some shot like crap. If it's not shooting consistent groups, I'd avoid trying to adjust anything until you can find a BH that at least shoots consistently in the same location. I'm assuming all the arrows are identical except for the FP and BH. I'm not a tuner at all so maybe some other guys will have better suggestions.

    Are you positive on your paper tuning? Are your fletchings hitting anything? When your shooting as fast of a bow as that everything needs to be perfect for consistency.

    Example: I bought my Carbon spyder zt 30 this spring and paper tuned it. Killed a turkey and shot all summer. Went to paper test last week and found it was no longer perfect. Also had two arrows that were not lined up perfectly and fletchings were knocking one thing or another. Bows do break in and change a little I have found. May even be out of time a little.

    Start at 10 yards and shoot 3 times at the same spot. Walk back 5 yards and do the same thing. See if you can determine when the groups breakdown.
