Speed is not an issue as I am getting 355 fps out of the crossbow. Which is part of the problem. I would rather use a cut on impact regular three blade broadhead but this crossbow has cost me some bucks trying to find out what it will shoot well with three and four blade broadheads. However it is a tackdriver with every expandable I have tried. I don't expect to reuse the expandable's just need some input on the best ones for feral hogs.

I have used Rage on 1 hog with a cross bow and it blew a huge hole on the backside. Pig went 60 yds, maybe.

I shoot a fast compound but of course it isnít as fast as your crossbow. I have shot a bunch of hogs with it and if I donít hit a shoulder I get a pass through with a huge hole using Rage and a dead pig pretty quickly! I have also heard see fixed blades with not near as quick as using the rage.

I shot these two hogs last weekend testing Rage Hypodermic 2" 2 blade expandable with my bow. I wanted a hog quartering to me to see how it performed through the shield and shoulder blade/bone. This hog (120 lbs on the scale) went 50 yards. Good blood even with only the entry hole.

I'm using Muzzy Trocar expandables with my Mission XB. Last one I shot was a 200 lb which went about 25 yards, laid down and died.
