so after listening to milo talk up the stinger buzzcuts at the bowshoot last week, and after seeing them in action on a few hunting shows I am going to give them a try this year.
Last year I was using muzzy three blade and when I shot my doe I was a little worried about the fact that I couldnt find any blood. They blew through her like a knife through hot butter, but when redcloud and I looked for a bloodtrail niether of us could find the first drop. luckily I heard her crash, and had a good idea where she was.

As far as tuning goes, The muzzy's hit low compared to field points, I had to use my 20 yard pin at 10 yards, 30 yard pin at 20 so on and so forth. the buzzcuts are the opposite, they seem to have a flatter flight. I have to use my 10 yard pin out to about 20 yards and my twenty yard pin at 30 yards. yesterday I shot three arrows at 30 yards using my 20 yard pin and all three hit dead center what I was aiming at. So far I like them. I need to get to a range so I can shoot at 40 and 50 yards to get everything completely dialed in.

You might do some paper tuning on your bow and make sure your rest is on. If you rest isn't perfect L/R and U/D, your broadheads will always hit different than your field points. If I'm thinking right, you "chase" your broadheads. If they are hitting low compared to field tips, you adjust your rest down, in small increments until your field points and broadheads are hitting the exact same. If they get further apart by chasing the broadhead, adjust the rest the opposite way. I just can't remember which way it is. lol Check that out first before you go adjusting your sights for your broadhead flight.

Greg's right.... It's usually not the broadhead, it's the bow that causes your BH's to hit differently than field points. If the bow is properly tuned, you should be able to shoot any broadhead out of it with good results, as long as the spin test is true on the arrow shaft. Paper tuning is a good start, but do yourself a favor and do some walk-back tuning as well. ArcheryTalk has some great threads that talk about walk-back tuning in detail. That being said, I've never cared for muzzys either. The blood trail is just not that great with them, IMO.
