FMJ arrows and 200 grain field tipsContributors to this thread:
What do you guys who use FMJ arrows do for field points, specifically 200 grain? I have some FMJ Dangerous game shafts that I’d like to try some 200 grain single bevel heads on but can’t seem to find and 17/64 field points in that weight to practice with. Anyone else run into this and what was your solution?
Did you try grizzly stick or look for ethics? I think they make the heavy ones as well. Not 100% sure tho. Also try Sirius archery. The ranch fairy arrows they sell tips too I believe!
I have found a few 200 grain points just not the exact diameter of those shafts. I am worried that the 9/32 ones will be hard to pull out of my target since the head will be larger than the arrow.
you could foot the fmj with an aluminum arrow
that will make it bigger for your field tips and strengthen the hit...
Camfer the back edge of the point, I use a cordless drill and file, makes them pull easier. Another option is to use Easton stainless steel 1/2 outs if you are using 5mm shafts they are heavier than the Hit insert.
I use the 75 grain steel half out inserts on mine. If you do that then you can use a standard size thread and diameter field point. 3rivers sells heavy field points.
My first suggestion would be to not use FMJs but that's a different story
Ended up with the 250 spine which take a 9/32 head. No trouble removing them from bag targets. Havent shot them into foam yet.
