    Default Messin with the onza at 70 yards

    A thread on archery talk got me thinkin about how spread out my group would be at 70 yards. Well considering i shoot the biggest pin i could buy (.029) i figured it wasnt half bad brought the camera out i picked up for hunting which its just a sony handycam but the zoom and audio pick up is amazing

    Nt bad grouping at all. Now all you have to do is adjust the sight a touch for windage and it's about 2 yards long. Very consistent shooting though on your part. You young guys are lucky. You're aiming at an orange X. I'd be lucky to see the bag, LOL.

    To be honest when i put the pin on the target it takes up most the center at that range if i had the .010 pin instead of the .029 my group would tighten considerably! That is something that i would like to experiment with in the future.

    smaller pins show more movement so smaller is not always better. it looks consistent . nice video!

    Nice job reaching out and touching your target. I'm inspired to clear out another 20 yards on my new range.

    Its a lot of fun but any little flaw will be multiplied at that range lol.

    Exactly. Now you should try 100 yards like I did.
