Just curious what everyone's finished arrow weight is for:

Muley's

Elk

I saw an article that 5-7 grains per draw pound is the recommended arrow weight. For a 70 lbs bow, that is a range of 350g- 490g.

Use it for everything. No clue what my FPS is. Never shot through a chrono.

350 grains, 70lb draw at 280fps, but my tackle is a wee bit old. :)

Damn Shaun, do you even find any of your arrows after you kill something with it?

Not sure what my speed will be on my new set-ups. But I will be flinging either 450 gr or 475 gr this year.

Havent got to use them on an animal yet besides ground squirrels with judos and they blow through and keep going. I am probably goin to run up the hill and hammer a hog pretty quick just so I can see what it will do.
