Crossbow bolts will generally bend a bit on impact with bone or rock or tree. A small bend in an arrow or bolt causes it to curve in flight. It is virtually impossible to make bolts without the proper tools and some seamless aluminum tubing. Modern crossbows use aluminum/fiberglass arrows for a reason.

1911, good sheath knife, food, water and my FN (if I had a .308 hunting rifle I would take that instead with the exception of Zombies then I want mag cap).
