i shoot the same draw as you but i'm at 70#. i shoot ~8.5 grain arrows and 100 grain broadheads. great combo for me

I shoot a 28 inch draw, 70# bow. My total arrow weight is 363. Shooting the new Victory Nano Force arrows at 7.6 gpi. Great for speed, but probably a little on the light side for hunting. I'll most likely bump up to 390 grains for a hunting set up. The lower weight, within reason, gives a flatter trajectory, but at a loss of kinetic energy on target. Heavier arrows will penetrate significantly better. I would try not to go much over 420 gr. total weight though.

I'm new to the sport and I just learned that if you shoot too light you can void warrenty on your bow. 5 grains per pound on your draw weight is a good rule to find how light you can shoot 65(5). 325 grains
