Today's crossbows are out of this world.Nothing like they used to be.
I've had my Horton Vision 175 for about 2 years,and it is an excellent crossbow. It will shoot a 20" bolt with a 100gr broadhead around 325fps,and is very accurate out to 60 yards.That's just the farthest that I shoot it regularly.
There are many great crossbows on the market,it all depends on how much you are willing to spend.
I originally was going to buy the PSE Tac-15,but just couldn't see paying twice as much for just a little more FPS,and then having to buy special bolts to shoot out of it for 3x's the price of regular bolts.

I like that crossbow I almost got it I liked it cause it seemed more balanced or less weight in the front easier to hold steady for longer time.

Here's a few out of the cabelas catalog looks like the best bang for your buck would be the quad 400 . With 345 fps

rem870forever,I'd suggest finding a local archery shop that sells crossbows.Go there and ask to shoot several that you like.
I wanted to find a crossbow that was fast,but also quiet.The Vision 175 fit the bill on what I wanted.
I shot 8-10 different bows,and this one was by far the quietest of them when fired.Some of these things are like trying to hold up a boat anchor,they were quiet,but trying to shoot them offhand was a chore after shouldering them for a while.I shoot several heavy barreled rifles all year long from 223-300WM,and some of these crossbows are worse than them in trying to stay on target shooting offhand.

You also can't go by the published FPS claims.The mfg's always claim faster speeds than what most hunting set-ups are.I shoot mine thru a chrono to check the speeds of different bolt/broadhead set-ups.

I would also suggest getting a name brand bow,you'll need to be able to buy new strings/cables for your bow,and if it's an off brand you could have trouble finding what you need.

Natchez has some good deals on Horton,Barnett,Ten Point/Wicked Ridge crossbows!
