Does anyone know if the high speed crossbow design is realistic?
I've been searching the internet for something like that for some time, but the thing I always see is that increase in speed seriously lowers power. I know that there was a crossbow that used a hand crank like that, but it was cumbersome and definitely not that fast.
The design seems like it could work, but IMO definitely couldn't kill a bear. (Maybe if you completely covered it with bolts and waited it to bleed out...)
Any thoughts on this?
