When it comes to arrows I always seem to be behind the eight ball. I have always shot Easton arrows which are great, dependable arrows. For the last 5 or 6 years I had been shooting “old technology”, the Easton ST Epic. These arrows had severed well and killed a lot of deer and other critters. But being a gear junkie I needed to try something new. Enter the Easton FMJ 6mm. The FMJ is a carbon core arrow with an aluminum exterior, hence the moniker FMJ. These are on the heavy side at 10.6 GPI(grains per inch) and that is exactly what I was looking for in a hunting arrow. Topped off with a 100 grain broadhead and 50 grain brass insert the finished weight is pushing close to 500 grains, ideal in my opinion for a hunting arrow. I am also getting great accuracy from the FMJ’s. Groups like the one below or better are the norm.
Another thing I really love about these arrows is the ease in which they pull from a 3d target. This may seem silly to some, but if you have ever shot a 3D league or tournament you know what I am talking about. The aluminum outer casing make these super easy to pull. Some of the carbon arrows feel like they had been super glued into the targets when pulling them, not the FMJ’s. I know you can use soap and other things to make pulling carbon arrows easier, but the FMJ’s are slick.
When deer season rolls around in October I will give an update on field performance. Click the link below if you would like to try the Easton FMJ’s. As always, buy purchasing through this link you help pay for this blog and site. Thanks a bunch!
