    I have a very similar situation. My old bow was plenty fast enough but had penetration issues at times on whitetails. I wanted to build a heavier arrow with my new bow especially since I will start taking it on elk and mule deer hunts. I got the Bowtech Reign with a 508gr arrow and I?m shooting 265fps. A little slower than I hoped so I am also debating on dropping about 50grains to pick up a little speed but I will see how it performs with heavier arrows this year since I already have them. I also switched to Slick Trick Vipertrick broadheads this year.

    I shoot a lighter arrow than most, just under 400... but very quick. I have killed a few elk with this setup, but I think when I run out of arrows and make the switch, I will move to something slightly heavier in the 440 range.

    551 grain goldtip Kenetics, 200 spine. Shooting a Hoyt Double XL, 31" draw, at 80lbs. Not sure the speed, but they hit very very hard!

    450 grain arrow cruising at 265 fps....tight groups and a little more forgiving vs when I was shooting 300 fps with a 400 grain arrow.
