Exclamation New Plan -- Crossbow

OK, here's a strange idea that just happens to look cool. The concept should be self-evident...

Consider this as the first version, with a possible longer shaft version if I can get the Dv numbers down a bit.

Length: 24.47"
Diameter: 1.04" (BC-760)
Fin Span: 13.91"
Weight: 1.07 oz

A8-3......270'.......Dv 15 FPS......36" x 1/8" rod
B4-4......595'.......Dv 25 FPS......36" x 1/8" rod
B6-4......600'.......Dv 29 FPS......36" x 1/8" rod
C6-5......1195'......Dv 25 FPS......36" x 1/8" rod

Addendum:

A10-3T......305'......Dv 13 FPS......36" x 1/8" rod
A3-4T.......310'......Dv 16 FPS......36" x 1/8" rod (Takes 34", so consider this carefully)

Enjoy!

Magic Number now at 27...
