Mike Stroff from Savage Outdoors Tv tells why he chooses to shoot Easton FMJ arrows while hunting.
Hitting the market back in 2006, Full Metal Jacket arrows are field-proven big game arrows for hunters seeking critical penetration in archery hunting. In an effort to provide bow hunters the highest level of lethal hunting results, Easton has united carbon and aluminum materials into one arrow—the FMJ or Full Metal Jacket. The FMJ arrow combines a full metal jacket over an micro diameter carbon core that results in a better penetrating arrow for bowhunters. FMJ arrows pull more potential energy from the bow and increase penetration by focusing their mass into a smaller diameter and reduced surface area. This results in less friction during flight for higher speed and more kinetic energy downrange. The ultra-micro diameter also penetrates with less friction within the target for more pass-through impacts to take down game quickly and hasten recovery. The slick aluminum surface further reduces friction for even more penetration and it offers noticeably easier extraction when pulling shafts from practice targets. FMJ’s are available in 4mm, 5mm, and 6mm micro diameters meeting price points to fit virtually any bow hunter.
