    Re: Ideal Arrow diameter for hunting/ back yard shooting?

    JPederson that sounds like a good arrow setup. Just typed a 500 grain arrow into the backcountry bow hunting calculator and it looks like I would be just under 270 for arrow speed at that weight. Seems like a good balance of mass and speed? What arrow speed were you trying to stay at with that setup? How are your pin gaps?

    For fun
    I loaded a bunch on screw in fact weights into the back of an old hunter 300 and the reduction in noise sure was nice.

    I wasnt exactly trying for a particular speed. OT2 has me around 280 ish. My pin gaps arent too bad. I dont plan to hunt beyond 50 and the range I practice at only goes out to 70. I was putting in for an Elk draw so I wanted some arrows with a little more punch.
