I am thinking of getting a crossbow.
want to shoot with a scope but just use one "pin".
how far can you shoot your crossbow using one pin or line on a scope?

I use the same "pin" for 20 and 30yds.
Starts dropping after that.

30 yards will be about as far as you could go with 1 pin and not have to worry about being way too high at <30 yards.

No matter what type of archery equipment you choose, range to target ALWAYS has to be considered.

The only thing I ever shot with a crossbow was the coyote I called up during bow season.

He got to "about" 30 yards and I put the 3 dot scope on him.
All 3 dots were on him so I just pulled the trigger. \:D
