bolts & broadheads

A crossbow's projectile is typically referred to as a bolt, and is much shorter than arrows used with traditional bows. Bolts can be made of several materials, the two most common being Aluminum and Carbon. Whichever material you choose to use with your crossbow, it must be compatible with the manufacturer's recommendations. This will ensure safety and maximum performance from your crossbow.
