After resplicing a loop on my single remaining bowstring,  I managed to shorten the string by 1 1/2″.  Shot #14  showed a velocity of 285 feet per second with a 6,867 grain bolt.  Draw weight was 4100 lbs.  With a few more adjustments I’m confident that we can turn in  300 fps pretty consistently.

I suspect that it will not be in the cards to get much more velocity than that out of these 10 1/2 lb limbs.  The way forward will be to lighten the Mk VIII limbs  by a couple of pounds or so.  …………. Or make the Mk. IX’s.

Ain’t ballistaing fun!   At this rate I could stretch these mods into a job for life.  It don’t get no funner than that.
