Testing The Bow-Mag .357 Magnum Arrow Tips

Taofledermaus tests them out:

Yea looks like the Bow-Mag is mainly just for cool factor and show.  It sucks that they destroyed the arrow in lots of his tests too.

Bow-Mag-Rac-Em-BackThey might as well make another bullet arrow head with a extra spot to sprinkle some binary explosive in just for kicks.

If you’re new to the Bow-Mag, I posted the exploding assault arrows promo video a while back.

Thoughts?  Any of you guys buy this $40 for a 6 pack and have different results?

Maybe if they added a 2″ barrel on the end it would at least penetrate more than 1/8″.

Then the path of least resistance would be just to the front and the rear. It would do a number on that arrow shaft.

It performed about like I thought it would. In effect it’s like taping a single tiny firecracker to the tip of an arrow.

There’s a reason throwing ammo into a fire is “fairly” safe – nothing to contain the explosion, so the bullet doesn’t go anywhere, same problem with these.

There is a reason bang stick tips are made of steel.

I was told (by Tex Grebner) that when they first made these, they actually had a small steel barrel in them. However, ATF considered them being AOW’s so the company dumbed them down. The problem is, they simply do not have any effectiveness now, and the company’s 2013 video is apparently using the OLD design (they look slightly different than the ones I got) and show a hog being killed with them. They are still being sold as something to hunt big game with but IMHO, they would be inhumane to hunt with.

They could print a barrel out of plastic, the guys that made the printed Liberators can do it, they should me able to do it.

Also, its legal if you added a.steel barrel, ATF rules allow it; 80% lowers proved this.

I felt like I was watching the Zapruder film on the 1st rifle shot to the gummy bear.
