    Default How many turns on limb bolts?

    Caribou, Elk and Moose don't have a history of coming after you and leaving you a wet spot on the ground.
    Cape buff run upwards of ton. Ain't nothing over kill for a buff. I like the Capstick (sp?) article I once read; Client; "Why do you carry a .600 Nitro Express?" Capstick; "Because they don't make a .700 Nitro Express."

    I've seen several setups where guys are shooting in the 85lb range with 700-800 gr arrow and having good results. I havn't maxed out my bow yet, but it should max at about 87lbs. It all comes down to shot placement on a big beast like this, and a guy with a big rifle behind you.

    According to the backcountry calculator, 560 gr gives max KE at 87lbs, but that is using velocity over mass to produce the KE. I think I want a heavier arrow for more punch for sure.

    That "Backcountry" calculator also says that anything over 66ft lbs is enough for Dangerous game, ie Cape Buffalo, Grizzly, etc. Currently you're at 21 ft lbs more than that! Hit 'em where you should and you'll have a new mount! I think you've got enough for T Rex as it is.
