    I have used to 4 blade stinger buzzcuts and am curious what about the black hornets should make me switch to them from the stingers?

    Im a black hornet user too. I shoot the 125 grain. I have two deer with them now. Pass through at 32 yards and at 49 yards. I only pull back 60lbs with a 445 grain arrow and a speed around 270. I have yet to shoot an elk with them. Archery elk just ended here but I have a late cow elk hunt in December so hopefully then.

    P.S I have shoot the buzzcuts and they shoot well for me out to 40 yards. After that I couldn't pattern the best. But I did kill a deer and an elk with them. The Black hornets patterned better for me out to 50 yards.

    NAP Thunderhead 125's - been using them for years. Might try the Muzzy Trocars or MX-3's. :bow:

    Ok, as I may have already posted earlier, I normally shoot 100 gr Wac'ems. This year, I tried a 100 gr solid VPA just to see (what all the hype is about). Shot a cow elk at 30ish yards quartering to (and yes, I'm sure I'll be lectured by the ethics police of my stupidity and "poor shot" decision and how I owe it the animal to not do this...but whatever) and hit right where I was aiming. The arrow hit the joint of the humerus and scapula breaking her leg, took out both lungs and the heart and broke through the skin on the opposite shoulder. She ran 25 yards and collapsed dead as dead can be.

    Attached is a pic of the elk and broadhead after the shot. You can see the left front leg is goofy looking because it is broke.

    The take away, VPA's are a well made broadhead (as I always suspected) and will be reused.

    NOTE: Unless you are sure about your setup, the shot I took is not recommended. This includes low poundage, low speed, low momentum/KE setups. Mine is 72 lbs, 29" draw, 17% FOC, 308 fps (at the bow) and 400 gr arrow. You can calculate the momentum and KE, it is enough.

    I'm actually leaning more towards the Wasp Drones. They have been shooting closer to my field points. But I still need to do some more broadhead shooting before season.

    Shuttle T-Lok 100 grain. First year with them. Have a buddy that has guided for years that swears by them, so giving them a shot. He says they open a super ball size hole in a deer. I'll let you know soon.
