Sighted in xbow with 2219 alum bolts tryed shooting some carbon eastons and they hit 6 or 8" off. Could this be weight difference?

Weight will make a difference as will the spine [stiffness] of the shaft.
Whatever "groups" the best is what I use.

I have had great luck with carbon bolts,never shot alum in the xbow but still remember seeing them whip around before stabilizing from a compound bow

It does sound like a spine problem. I have shot both but spine correctly and they did fine.

red hot bolts from parker. always accurate with red hot fixed blade 100gr broad heads. They get on track quick and are front loaded so on impact they simply don't slow down. Shot a doe at 30 yards between two saplings. Arrow complete pass through and was stuck a 1/8 inch in tree 10 yards behind her. I will never go back to another brand again.
