Are Easton FMJ good for hunting?

When it comes deer hunting arrows, Easton Archery falls into that best-of-class category. Specifically, the FMJ line of arrows has been so impressive that it’s really hard for me to delineate vast difference in performance (on deer). They fly straight, hit hard and penetrate deeply.

Are FMJ arrows worth it?

The advantage of the FMJ over just aluminum is the core is still carbon, which is more stable and damps better, allowing the arrow to recover more quickly out of the bow. I like them better than all carbon for the added weight, no carbon ‘blow up’, and they are way easier to pull out of targets.

Will Easton FMJ bend arrows?

They can bend, but carbon can break.

Are FMJ arrows durable?

I like the FMJ’s also. For me they have been just as durable as a regular black Axis shaft, but carry more weight and are MUCH easier to pull from targets. I’m still shooting a couple of the shafts that have already proven their worth by passing through elk or mule deer.

What is a deep six Broadhead?

Deep Six is the field-proven thread standard designed and manufactured by Easton, for ultra-micro diameter (4MM & 5MM) arrows. Low-friction, high kinetic energy density, Deep Six provides the DEEPEST PENETRATION ever seen with any arrow/broadhead system.

What are the Easton FMJ arrows made of?

If you are not familiar with the FMJ (Full Metal Jacket), it is a shaft that is made specifically for bowhunters who want maximum penetration on game. The arrow consists of a high-strength carbon core that’s wrapped with 7075 aerospace aluminum. The carbon core gives it strength, stability and added penetration power.

Can you cut FMJ arrows?

The FMJs are a bit more tricky to properly cut. Use your regular arrow saw, but we adjust our cutting blade to cut partially through the shaft and then rotate the shaft for a more square and cleaner cut.

What is arrow FOC?

FOC stands for Front of Center balance point. This measurement results from the relative weights of the components used in the arrow: shaft, insert, point, fletching and nock. A properly balanced arrow measurements of 7 to 15%.

What are Easton Full Metal Jacket arrows made of?

What’s the difference between Easton axis and FMJ?

The most significant difference between Easton Axis vs FMJ is while Easton Axis is made entirely from carbon, FMJ is made with a carbon core wrapped with an aluminum alloy metal jacket, which gives FMJ a couple of advantages over Axis. Yet, both are top-notch arrows. Get Axis Arrows if you want to have a better FOC.

Which is better a light arrow or a FMJ?

The heavier the arrow, the smaller the diameter, the deeper they go into your targets. If you shoot with a light arrow, a lot of energy of release ends up staying in the bow. You’ll get less efficiency. The arrow will not carry as much energy. The diameter of the FMJ is smaller. A small diameter has a couple of advantages.

Which is heavier the Axis 400 or the FMJ 400?

For example, the Axis 400 spines are 9.0 GPI. On the other hand, FMJ has the same spine weight 10.2 GPI. That gives us a couple of advantages (see below section). FMJ is not only heavier, but also a little straighter than the Axis.
