Been tuning and shooting a lot from 60 in. Tonight I took my new PRIME CT5 to 100 yards and sent two arrows. Had some wind so was holding 12" right.

I was impressed.

Nice shooting.

I’m not quite that tight at that long of range. Been up and down this year.....

Had some decent wind gusts (5-10 mph right to left). Held on target as I am still trying to see how these micro diameter arrows are affected.

Thanks, Oh believe me I doubt I could shoot that tight at 100 all the time. I plan to hunt to 60 yards in good conditions and dependent on the game. But would feel better at 40 for sure.

I have always had a really convoluted way to determine effective range. Essentially 50% distance of a consistent 10” group.

Since reading Phil Mendoza’s philosophy in “Shoot of Don’t Shoot”, I have adopted his method of 1/3rd’s. So I am really trying to get a 9” group at 80yards to have effective range of 50.

But as you said, closer the better. My last two dead elk were 33 and 10 yards. Much prefer that range!
