ok guy's, may have discussed this before but I don't remember it? The Full Metal Jackets from Easton, what must one do to get a broadhead in one? I bought some to try, but my rage will not screw in. Only broadhead I have that will fit is a Stinger. Can someone help me out with some advice?

All of them work in mine...but I did have a couple arrows that the threads must have been buggered up in and I couldn't get anything to go all the way in.

You have to have a thread "buggered up" as CT statedóeither on the broadhead, or the insert.

Heres what I am seeing, the threads will go into the diameter of the arrow shaft but the non threaded part of the fieldpoint or broadhead is to large of diameter to slide up into the shaft for the threads to catch? The diameter of the FMJ's are way smaller than any gold tip or carbon express I have ever shot. Back in the day when carbon arrows were first introduced, Beeman had some of these small dia. shafts and there was a glue on insert that slid over the tip of the arrow the points screwed into. didn't know if the FMJ's were the same?

When I bought mine, I made the mistake of letting the guy at BPS put the inserts in, when I got home none of the field tips or broadheads would screw in. Turns out he used too much glue and had gotten on the threads. I had to use a heated field point to clear the threads of the excess glue.

Also from eastons website, make sure you are using the correct size threads. I shoot the 100 grain G5 Montecs and they fit fine in my 400's.

500 9.1 0.500 31 9 16 17/64 BAR3
400 10.2 0.400 31.5 9 16 17/64 BAR3
340 11.3 0.340 32 9 16 9/32 BAR5
300 12.0 0.300 32.5 9 16 9/32 BAR5

Where are you located at? If you can't get it to go down further than the threads, you have something wrong with that insert. I have no problem with screwing any broadhead onto my Epics or Axis arrows and I have screwed just about everything on both arrowsóRage, Slick Tricks, Strikers, Muzzy's, Grim Reapers, Tekkans. Does a field point go all the way down with no problems?

I'm located in Dayton, TN. And the field points won't go in either. On the shaft of most field points and broadheads there is shaft above the threads that is not threaded. The non threaded shaft is what will not fit in the diameter of the arrow shaft. If I rememner correctly the Epics and the Axis are larger in diameter than these Full Metal Jacket arrows.

I just called the pro shop where I bought them, they said they had never had any trouble with and tip screwing in. They had a new guy helping the day I was in there and maybe he put to much epoxy or even put the inserts in backwards.>?? who knows. he said bring them by and they would fix them! so off I go. I will keep everyone posted to what happened so if anyone else has the issue we will know a fix. thanks for the replys!
