Hello everyone,
     I'm new to the forum, though I've been reading it for years, so thanks to you all for sharing your knowledge. Here is a pic of my usual small game/stumping blunts. I use a screw driven backward into the end of my natural shoot shafts. I also add a small washer for extra weight and electrical tape around the very end of the shaft, which prevents splitting. It costs only pennies, and I've never had one break or split on me after years of using this type of point.

Sorry, they block me posting pics directly at work.  basically, just slip this over a shaft.   If you file that rim a bit, you can make a sharper edge on the blunt all the way round.

I didn't file these at all but I did add some heat shrink tubing.

Sucks that the attachments on the first post are gone... I want to make blunt arrows for target shooting (having them bounce off)
This sounds good, it's just like the "nutter" in the OP? And what were they doing with the planing? Barreling? Tapering the point so the nut would stick in?

The tarantula sounds nice though. Wish there still were pictures. I might also go with a normal large bolt and PEX.. though I think that'd bury itself too much

This also seems very nice

I'm not sure of what would be best for bamboo. Could just put a peg in if it's hollow, treat tonkin like wood.

Just bringing this back to the top in case the admins want to re-sticky it.

I don't know.Never heard them called that.They are just cheap center shot 2 and 3/4 inch regular shotgun shells far as I know.The plastic bee bee casing is thrown away.The brass just put on there to protect the wood head from rocks and such of course.All I know is a body blow from them immobilizes the squirrels and cotton tails here.They are not too practical or advisable to shoot at 3D targets making big deep dents and I'd hate to get hit in the center of my back.....lol.Pretty sure they'd bust a vertebra or a shoulder blade.

They certainly look effective!  The "high brass shells" are generally heavier hunting loads, and magnum loads, pheasants, waterfowl, etc.; "low brass" are target, skeet, etc.  I will have to check my cache and junk shell bag for some usable empties.  We make a habit of picking spent cases wherever we find the, so I have plenty!

I see...about the brass height.Don't think I've ever bought trap & skeet  loads then I guess.All of the blunts I've seen displayed will do a damn damn really.There fun arrows for stump shooting too.

What size shoots do you start with?  20 ga. Is about .62 cal or so.  Do you fletch with a standard 3 feather? Or a 4 or more?

A person will need to start with thicker than normal shoots of course or be picky about the kind harvested.While harvesting a person will see that all shoots are'nt the same in their taper.I'll harvest ones that fit the brass nicely.With the arrow a shade longer of 3" or so I increase the thickness just on the last 3" on the tip end.Looking sort of bulbous.The rest of the shaft is spined to the bow and the normal thickness I like it.Helps to harvest a lot of shoots pick through the ones that suit ya.
Fletching is just your standard 3 feather fletch.
