    What's your FOC %?

    Arrow forward of center percent. What you guys got? I am 8.5% and I get good broadhead arrow flight they actually matches my field points. 350 total grains on my arrow, 298FPS. I have scene 7-10% is the range you want to be in from the "industry?" Any other info you got on the matter would be helpful.

    Here is a simple archery calculater I have been using:

    I seem to always stick with around 12% it gives me the best overall performance for my set ups.
    Especially the longer yardages. When I am below 10% I feel my groups aren't as tight down range 60 and beyond.

    11-12% FOC / 390 grain arrow, I also feel it helps maintain tighter groups at longer ranges.

    I was toying around with throwing 125gr broadheads on and that would get me in the 12% range if the spine on my arrow can handle it. Will loss FPS but it might equal tighter groups and more forgiving down range. Never been above 10% so good to see others having success above that.
