I use one pendulum pin sighted it for 26 yards. I have begun shooting my practice Montec G5 broadheads.

The vertical is perfect at 26 yards but the arrow is hitting about 1.5" to 2" right. I plan to just move my sight slightly to realign. I'm not going to change from the G5 broadheads.

Is this reasonable to have broadheads be off just a little compared to the field tips?

I dont care what the broadhead companyss say no broadhead is going to fly like a feild tip. so as long as you have your bow tuned properly/ paper tuned. you just have to sight your bow in for your broadheads.

on another forum someone suggested I move the arrow rest slightly to the left and see how that corrects both the FT and BH. I did just that. I moved the rest about 5/1000 (thickness of a business card) to the left. At 28 yds w/ one pin, both tips shoots alike. Good tip from a fellow hunter.

if your bow is tuned properly, everything is in cue, your broadheads esp muzzy mx3's will shoot exact to your field points. If your broadheads are off a considerable distance, like above stated, start with your rest...

I disagree. My magnus' hit spot on where my field points hit, and I dont have to re-sight or re-tune for broadheads.

Two suggestions...

Have someone watch you shoot to make sure you're not torquing. Any flaw in grip or form will be exaggerated with broadheads.

Second, paper tuning is great but it is not always the "best" way to tune your bow. With your broadheads try either walkback or french tuning (a google search will quickly give you a better tutorial than what I could type off the top of my head). One note here, only shoot one arrow at a time using broadheads when tuning with either of these methods or it could get spendy very fast with broken arrows and broadheads.

If you don't plan on shooting any further than 26-30 yards, then perhaps you can get away with simply sighting in to the broadheads knowing that a 2" variance on shots at that distance is within the margin of error to kill your quarry.
