Stone is lighter than steel! Many folks want to order 125 grain points but that is actually a really big stone point! Too big in my experienced opinion to reliably and repeatedly take deer sized animals. I have done much better with smaller dimension, lighter weight points. I have a TON of information on this and the reason why linked right here. Small dimensions are better for Penetration. If you’d like to see even more, click here
There is quite literally an art to properly making arrows to shoot properly with appropriately sized stone points. This is something I specialize in. I highly recommend purchasing both arrows and points from me if you’ve not done it before, but lots of this information can be found under the “Information & Education” pages. If you have any questions at all, give me a call 352 428 4704
Here are the approximate Grains (gr) I recommend per the weight of the bow. (weights based on average performing primitive bows.)
All points are minimum 7/8″ wide to meet legal size requirements.
40-45# bows (I recommend bows over 45#) 50gr
45-50# bows 50-60 gr (small)
50-60# bows 70-90 gr (medium)
60+ # bows 90-100 gr (large)
Flint (chert) is the toughest material (still plenty sharp but not super sharp)
Obsidian is the sharpest (Very sharp but a little more fragile)
Dacite is a nice blend of both (nice middle ground between chert and obsidian)
If you are used to shooting 125+ grain points and want to shoot stone, If you purchase my arrows and points I can make it happen even with stone points by using cheater weights in the arrow’s tip. Just call 352 428 4704 for more explanation and you can order on the phone if you please.
