Most SCA crossbow bolts are setup for a power stroke of 8 inches from a 
3 1/2 inch brace.Or an overall 11 1/2 inches from the mounted prod to 
the fingers of the release.  This is because those are the  
recommendations for most all the Alchem and and similar dimension prods 
that you can buy.   The overall crossbow bolts stat off with a 14" or so 
shaft.  Combat arrows are of course limited by the rules to 28 inches.

Constructed from Extren 500 Fiberglass shafts, Asgard APD, Classic 
Baldar Blunt
Combat Crossbow Bolt  ~61g
Combat Arrow   ~83g
