Buying the Best Crossbow Bolts

When you are buying crossbow bolts for use with your crossbow, the first step you should make is to look at your crossbow manufacturers specific recommendations. Most crossbow manufacturers will recommend a minimum grain weight and bolt length that is best for use in each model. They may also make other recommendations and guidelines that you will want to follow regarding which type of crossbow bolt is best to achieve peak performance from your crossbow. While it is not necessary that you use crossbow bolts made by your crossbow’s manufacturer, it is important that the bolts and arrows that you choose are compatible with your crossbow.

Options and other considerations that will be important when buying crossbow bolts include:

Crossbow Bolt Grain Weight

You will find that the lightest crossbow bolts fly the fastest. However, when buying the best crossbow bolts for your crossbow, it is important to realize that shooting arrows or bolts that are under the minimum recommended grain weight from your manufacturer will put your bow’s components under considerable stress. Therefore, shooting underweight arrows may void your factory warranty and can result in an increased risk of personal injury.

Additionally, it is important to realize that a lighter and faster arrow is not always better for crossbow hunting. For example, you often achieve better broadhead flight and better overall shooting control when shooting at more moderate speeds. Finally, choosing heavier crossbow bolts can make your crossbow quieter and will prolong the life of your crossbow components.

Crossbow Bolt Material: Carbon vs. Aluminum

Another consideration to make when buying the best crossbow bolts is whether you want to buy aluminum or carbon crossbow bolts. Aluminum and carbon crossbow bolts each offer different advantages, but in general, the decision between the two is typically based on personal preference as most crossbows are compatible with either type of crossbow bolt or arrow.

  • Aluminum Crossbow Bolts: Aluminum crossbow bolts tend to be less expensive than carbon bolts. However, these bolts are softer and may bend or become damaged more easily.
  • Carbon Crossbow Bolts: Carbon crossbow bolts and arrows are more durable than aluminum crossbow bolts. They can resist breaking, bending, and other damage and therefore, will fly straighter with a flatter trajectory. A major downside to carbon crossbow bolts is that they absorb less energy from the bow and result in greater noise when fired.
