What size arrow is best for deer hunting?
Under most deer hunting conditions a heavyweight arrow in the 8 to 9 grains per pound range is a fine choice producing arrow speeds in the 220 to 235 fps range. If the shot distance may approach 30 yards then a mid-weight, full-length arrow pushing a medium sized broadhead is the best choice.
What are the straightest arrows?
Carbon arrows are by far the most popular type of arrows in use today. The best arrows are advertised to have straightness tolerances from 0.001 to 0.006 inches, and naturally the straighter the arrows the more expensive they will be.
Is a 400 grain arrow good for hunting?
400 grain arrows running 305ish fps (which is probably a bit faster than your set-up) have worked fine for me on deer. Blows right through them if placement is good. I haven’t shot elk with that set-up but wouldn’t be worried about it.
What arrows for 70lb bow?
A light arrow has a finished weight of between 5 and 6.5 grains for each pound of your bow’s maximum draw force. A lightweight arrow for a 70-pound bow would have a finished weight (including broadhead) between 350 and 455 grains.
What size arrow should I use?
The standard way to measure arrow length is from the back of the point to the throat of the nock. If you’re a 28-inch draw length and want an arrow that ends at the front of the riser, your arrow length would be around 27 inches. However, your arrow length can be longer if you need to weaken the spine of your arrow.
How heavy of an arrow should I shoot?
Bentcik said the most important factor in arrow weight is safety. He said bow manufacturers set their safety ratings around 5 grains per pound to prevent injuries. Arrow shafts must be heavy enough to absorb the bow’s energy when you trigger your release.
What is a good arrow straightness?
Arrows with tighter straightness tolerances will also have lower spine deviations. This means that the guy who buys a +/-. And for archers that want to shoot long range or large fixed blades AND have a long arrow (anything over 29″) I usually recommend +/-. 001 arrows.
What is the difference between 350 and 400 arrows?
The numbers refer to the spine of the arrow. The different spines refer to the stiffness, a 400 spine arrow is generally for bows 40-60 lbs. 350 spine is for bows roughly 55 – 75 lbs, and a 500 spine arrow is for bows roughly 30 – 50 lbs. 1 of 1 found this helpful.
Is a 450 grain arrow too heavy?
450 is plenty. I’m at 400 and have a much greater “error window” for a misjudge in yardage, which gives me a greater chance to put an arrow in the vitals. And 400 grains is more than enough to kill a elk or any animal smalller.
What grain arrows should I shoot?
If you want to target practice, you want the arrow to weigh in total (shaft, vanes, insert, nock and field point combined) around 5 to 6 grain per pound of draw weight. So if your bow has 60 lbs. of draw, you want to use arrows that weigh in total between 300 and 360 grain.
