White tails and hogs are my game but i only like to shoot once and not chase a blood trail so my h&r 45-70 does the trick with 405 grain pushing the hunk of lead through it

Wide open question but I think it would depend on what crossbow you have,with my Excaliber Vortex with 200lb pull I have shot and killed deer at 40yds but I generally would not shoot at one any farther than that,however that's just me, I think it would shoot up to 50yds or little more. JMO

My Hunting...

Well i do alot of waterfowling...Geese, snows my favorite...Ducks....i also a bow hunter of 37 years and have gotten into crossbow hunting in the last few years...seems hockey and motocross has taken a toll of my old bones..and the bow does a job on my shoulders ...My favorite waterfowling gun is the Benelli SB1....awsome and fast...my crossbows a Quad 400 with scope and crank and i shoot ics Beman thunderbolts and Muzzy 125's..and my choice of sabot shotgun is the moss 500 all camo'd up....rifled barreled and shooting Remington sabots.....Muddie49;)

I've shot my xbow up to 50 yards only at targets...and it hits like a mule...i don't get or take them kinda shots at deer...i keep it inside 35 yards...Muddie49
