Whitetail Hunter 400 XTR

When searching for a new crossbow, finding a lightweight, maneuverable, easy-to-use crossbow that’s accurate and affordable has always been Barnett’s focus. The latest addition to Barnett’s Whitetail Hunter Series checks these boxes. The new Barnett Whitetail Hunter 400 XTR boasts features that complement any hunter at every experience level.

Weighing only 6.5 pounds, this most recent design is not only narrower but offers faster ballistics compared to its predecessors. To pursue innovation, the 400 XTR from Barnett’s Whitetail Hunter series is 25 fps faster than the previous generation. Engineers also took off 3 inches of axel-to-axel length, resulting in an ATA of just 10 inches. This improves maneuverability and offers excellent handling without sacrificing power.

For seamless and consistent firing, a TriggerTech 3-pound, zero-creep frictionless release trigger comes installed. It engages with the anti-dry-fire trigger system to prevent accidental discharge while unloaded. The trigger is manufactured from metal injection to provide consistent manufacturing and feel.

Assembly and use are not only simple, but they’re equally efficient. Composite Laminated Limbs are attached to the frame with single-bolt assembly. This attachment system is proven throughout many of Barnett’s offerings. While preparing for use, a patented Soft-Lok floating bristle arrow retainer guarantees proper placement and retention of arrows. A lightweight side-mount quiver ensures follow-up shots are well within reach.

Cocking this system is simple with a rope cocking device. The 205-pound draw also can be cocked with a stock-mounted crank device. Integrated finger safety notches allow a user tactile feedback when nearing the end of the stock, and they provide a safe area to hold while ready to fire.

This out-of-the-box hunting crossbow comes standard with a 4x32mm multi-reticle scope. Barnett has integrated three Picatinny rails for attachment of additional accessories. Two 22-inch Headhunter arrows and lubrication wax are neatly packed in the ready-to-hunt package. With 135 ft-lbs of kinetic energy and 13.4-inch power stroke, the movement is minimal, with an effective force capable of taking down even the largest buck.

Sporting Mossy Oak Bottomland camo, the Whitetail Hunter 400 XTR measures at 33 inches x 16.25 inches and has a cocked axel-to-axel measurement of 10 inches. It’s easy to see why this bow will become the mainstay for many hunters of all sizes and skill levels.

With the growing evolution of Barnett crossbows, the Whitetail Hunter 400 XTR leads the way in performance, profile ergonomics and capabilities for all hunting skills.
