This post is for Kevin who is getting ready for his first Lion archery hunt. You are using Gold Tip 5575/400 with a tolerance of +- 0.006 for your every day target arrows. That is fine and should give a 2 inch extra grouping @40 meters. For a big 5 hunt I would want better. The Pro Hunter series has a +- 0.001 tolerance that leaves nothing to blame but the shot itself. For me 1 inch is the difference between a heart shot and a charge. Think also that you do not want to be closer than 40 meters. Your decision to use a G5 is fine. I would not use the mechanical blades. Claude will have options for you as well. Just practice and be confident between 40 to 50 meters. Tin cans mate.

Interesting. I wonder if there are any videos of proper field testing between the tolerances.

Thanks for the post!

Great idea for some WHC testing! You should rock it out! Us guys trapped inside away from this coldest winter in recorded history wouldn't mind watching some video of the outdoors :-)

Yeah, it's just too sunny here for that. I would need to wear sun glasses and stuff. Might get attacked by butterflys. All the flowers are blooming so,.. allergies,. you know... it is a rough, horrible, hard life here ;)

You guys will soon find out!
