Doesn't shootin at stumps jack your arrows up? I have a range finder I intend to carry. I bought the stupid thing for 300 dollars and I've only used it to check 2 BS stories. " I shot that deer at 276 yards" and " what do ya mean to far? he was maybe 150 tops!" I shoot 125 grain field points and these Muzzy's seem to have a great rep for quaility. I intend on shooting 125 only. I didn't think it was a big deal to switch. I switch bullet weights and adjust for it.

Are you still shootin instinctive or did you get a new sight? The weight of the arrow tip will change the trajectory quite a bit. But if you are shooting instinctive and practice alot mixing arrows you will be alright. Muzzy is a good dollar for dollar broadhead. Tough accurate and cheap.

Shootin stumps can mess up arrows thats why I shoot the rotten ones. The judos are nice cause if you miss it keeps your arrows from snakin under ground.

There are other reason not to switch tips. It can change the spline of your arrow and bring it out of tune.

heres my best method for learning yardage:

i put a latter stand or a platform up in the yard. get a package of balloons and some cheap arrows with field heads. blow up the balloons about 3 to 6" in diameter and take something like pins to hold them to the ground. put them randomly all around the yard and start shooting. its a fun game to play with buddies.

also, i would place my target in an open area with no reference points. you'd be suprised how the lay of the land can screw with yardage.
