Crossbow VS Nine Water Bottles, For a new video on YouTube I decided to see how a Barnett commando 2 compound Crossbow (150lb draw weight) would perform against water bottles, my personal prediction was that it would go through all of them, i was quite wrong, first I just shot one bottle and the bolt went through no trouble, then i shot the nine bottles together, the bolt went through six bottles and stayed there, I then shot them again and the bolt only went through three or four, but this one was strange, the point on the bolt came off and carried on through 2 more bottles, so that could mean it is the flights that are stopping the bolt going right through, I did originally think it was the water causing a drag effect, but it might not be.
