    Default Gold Tip Inserts, What Size Threads?

    I want to order some different brand (Saunders) and weight screw in field points but Saunders lists all these different threads and I don't know which ones to get. Any ideas?

    8-32 Seems to be the common answer to that after a little Google Research. I couple of posts on AT about that very subject and that is the answer that was given there.

    Hope that helps

    Yeah - fieldpoints, broadheads etc are all basically 8-32's. Are you sure your not looking at the outside diameter? That usually comes in 5/16's 11/32's etc.

    Did you mean 9/32? 8/32 would be reduced to 1/4 I would think. I'll google it too. I thought someone might shoot GT and know.

    Thank you! I was wondering why there was no commonality with the threads? I just showed how wet behind the ears I am!

    Now I will go to the GT website and see if they list the OD of my Velocity Hunters.

    I have it figured out now thanks to spiker. When looking at the numbers it is the OD I am seeing, not the thread. I should have known but I didn't.

    I think i will get some 19/64 sized points. I'm spending way too much time trying to find something just perfect. LOL

    Pretty certain you'll need a 5/16" point if you want it to sit flush with the insert.
