Heavy hunting point
« on: March 21, 2019, 11:47:33 pm »
I was shooting for a 150 grain hunting point with this piece of gravel. It had some cracks and concrete and I couldn't hit where I was aiming, so it turned out a little thicker than planned and weighs  175 grains.
It has a small bump like a mole on one side and some fingernail hinges here and there so it's loaded with features beyond what comes standard on a new hunting point.
Here's the rock and biface

Still looks like a killer 1442. I usually make 125 grain points but I've been thinking next hunting season I'd like to tune some shorter arrows to my shorter bow. I'm thinking a 175 grain might be just what I need to get my spine right.

Excellent use of a small nodule.  Is that landscape gravel?

thanks
it is from a landscape gravel pile, but this latest load delivered has Citronelle looking gravel mixed in. This piece is really similar to Citronelle gravel
