New to cross bow hunting and this forum. Bought the Matrix 405, shooting it with 22inch Full Metal Jackets with 150grain broad-heads. Groups great but does start to drop off 40 yards +.

This was posted by Boo on 6/4/17 and although it is not about about arrow and bow combinations it goes to another important topic....that of "arrow preparation" before fletching.....an area where many members have struggles with! :wink:

Knurl the inserts between 2 files to give it texture.
Wash the inserts in acetone.
Run a 30 cal bore brush into the shaft to remove loose material.
Stick the shaft into acetone and shake. Remove the shaft from the acetone and shake off the excess. Do this 3 times.
Let all cleaned surfaces dry for couple of hours or until there is zero smell of acetone.
Do not touch any of the cleaned surfaces with your hands.
Put a small bead of glue on the inside edge of the shaft and at the forward corner of the insert (the end going into the shaft) as well as on the glue surface of the insert. If you do not see a bead of glue build up ahead of the shaft, you haven't used enough glue.
Push and turn the insert into the shaft and smack it on a wooden surface to seat.
Do not use the shaft for 24 hrs.
Goat Tough, the blue top Gorilla glue, G5 blue glue all worked for me with no problems. Twenty four hour two part epoxy works really well. Cleanliness is more important than the glue used.
