    Arrow Grain Weights?

    What seems to be a good grain weight for arrow set up for Elk? I am shooting 340 ACC/wrap with Red Feather Archery Phoenix 100's which gives me grain weight of 440.

    Sounds like you have a good elk set up right where your at. You don't need to change nothin'.

    Awesome. That's my neck of the woods. I'll probably be doing 83. Unless I luck out and get an archery deer tag for 80/81.

    If you are confident with that setup, I would go with it, sounds like a great weight to me. Good luck on your hunt.
    Shoot STR8

    I just bought a new bow (I did not need one) so I could give my brother my 1 year old bow. He just graduated law school and could not afford one at this time. So it is a new set up for me and I just wanted to make sure it will work. Thanks for all the replies and help!!
