    not nearly as high as I would like. You start running 30" of 10-13gpi and your FOC goes down real quick.
    I am in the 10-15% range depending on my exact set up.

    But I am slamming them in there with over 80ft-lbs KE so I have that going for me. Watch out water buffaloes!

    I don't even pay attention to it. I build my arrow to meet the total mass weight I want for that set up and don't worry about FOC. That said its always pretty high because it's rare that I am not either using 75 grain SS hits or Brass H inserts at 75 grains also.

    My whitetail set up this year is 390 ACCs with 75 grain brass hits and 100 heads, IW, Soilds, Evos and Viper tricks, raptor tricks and Sevrs....depending on my mood. Total weight is 480 grains .

    19.7% I feel that is the required FOC to kill a whitetail.

    :deadhorse:

    Just kidding, I don't pay much attention. I do build my arrows heavy though. It's tough with a long wing span to get the FOC up.

    I want to be around the 9-15% mark ... this year as past years I'm at 9.4% ... broadheads and FP's stack and I am getting great bare shaft flight ... Velocity 300's at 427ish gr's, I dropped to 61lbs for this season, not sure of the speed yet (addendum : 287fps) .... I use a 20gr GT Fact wt. to get there(132 grs up front total).. a 25 gr Glory Nock and 3 Blazers is on the rear.... I dont buy into the heavy weight arrow crap, nor the high FOC stuff some do ... my arrows group great, bust thru BIG deer, and I get good speed, so why change a thing ...

    I buy my arrows from the shop, have them cut em to length, and throw a 100gr head on there and hit the woods. I’ve never weighed my arrows, stuck inserts in, or anything like that. I’m a simple guy. 60lb draw, arrow cut to the right length, and a 100gr broadhead is all you need to be able to kill a whitetail.

    Expecting a mob of torches after saying that :lol:
