You will need to sight the bow in with the scope provided. the kit comes with 3 bolts... I purchased a set of 12 for it and sighted it for them. It will need to be sighted for the bolts u purchase for yours.

The scope is close. You need to fire at three different dots. (due to tight groups, you'll ruin bolts). If all three consistantly off in same direction. Adjust accordingly. I found my first dot on scope to be good out to 30 yards. then 40,50,60. Dead on at 60 after tweeked in at 30. My first year for a cross bow. Just finished my season here in PA. Picture below shows how it went. 50 yards. Perfect in through corner of heart and through both lungs. Made it 55 yards and dropped. LOVE MY GHOST 400 BABY!! Screaming fast.

I think Broadhead size is a personal preference, however in this case with the energy and arrow speed your getting from this Crossbow, it cant hurt to go with 125's for the bigger cutting area. I use the 125 g with mine.

answer 3
The bolts that came with the crossbow had 100grain field points already on them so I bought 100grain broad heads.. Barnett recommends at least a 425grain arrow broadhead included.. And their arrows are 325grain..that's what I went with and bow performs great...
