TenPoint Nitro 505 Review (The Most Powerful X-Bow to Date?)

TenPoint has been leading the cutting edge of crossbow technology for a couple decades now, and its latest, new-for-2022 Nitro 505 is simply ridiculous. It shoots a 400-grain arrow at 505 FPS (509, actually) to deliver 230 ft.-lbs. kinetic energy!

However, what JJ wants to know is: With all that speed and limb-vibrating energy, is it accurate? Will it hold up?

Watch the video for JJ’s exclusive, first-review, completely honest review of one of the first commercially manufactured crossbows that breaks the 500 fps barrier. This think is darn-near like a rifle at 100 yards!

Is the video long? Yes, but if you are contemplating purchasing a $3,000-plus crossbow, a few extra minutes might be worth your time. If you want the best, this is it.


At an early age Jeff was kicked in the face by an exposed hammer shotgun, stunting his growth but also sparking a passion for guns, hunting and the outdoors. Since the crack of that old gun, he's traveled the world, hunting, shooting and writing for national outdoor magazines. His Youtube page adds a bit of practicality to tacticality, dispels hunting and shooting myths, gives fairly honest reviews of guns and gear because he's not beholden to anyone, and offers real-world based tips--that might well be wrong. Rest assured, Jeff is no Navy SEAL, although he stayed at a Holiday Inn once in San Diego.
