Its about the same Clint.
A heavy enough arrow and this may just be a chance for a Stone point.....without having to go through the ribs. How brave you feeling these days    :readit:    :)

I would think that thick fiberous hide would be a problem with stone points.

perhaps andy. it would take alot more testing and i'm not living in buff country any more. you might have to take the reins on that one. woody would be glad to make you some points i'm sure.

james, stone points seem to work for the hide, it's the ribs they don't like.
