Looking for thoughts...I have been looking for a crossbow for a while..looked at second hand but held off. I was trying to stay around the 400 dollar mark but ran into a few extra dollars..lol. I was looking for high speed..350 fps plus and high kinetic energy...100 plus. Soon realized these come at a price. Also was looking at compound crossbows but think I'm going to go with Excalibur due to the simple limb set up. These 2 crossbows sit at 305 fps and around 72 lbs of kinetic energy at 40 yrds. From what I have read it should be able to drop a deer. Anyone have any experience with any of these crossbows?
