ARCH - Bounce Back

In discussing the problem of arrows "bouncing back" and possibly
causing damage through our helm grills, my brother said he had
seen devices to reduce bounce back which consisted of a movable
load which slid along the axis of the device. When the device
hit and began to rebound, the load was still moving forward and
impacted with the head absorbing most of the energy.
In our situation, that might be a blunt that was filled partly
with sand or a liquid. Or it might be a ring that slid along the
shaft. Is this practical?
Clearly it does not prevent deflections from causing trouble, but
it may help "bounce back" situations.
