Is it limited by the bow and type of arrows used, or is there anything else that affects this.

It's also affected by your Dexterity and Bows skills. The amount of this effect depends on which Avernum game you're playing; in Avernum 1 and Avernum 2 your skills have a small effect, but in Avernum 3 it's very significant indeed.

Hm... in that case, is there any practical reason that someone would use a regular bow instead of a crossbow? My current A2 party has refused to make the switch.

Only if you had magical arrows and a magical bow compared to poor bolts and a poor crossbow.
