This may be a dead horse, but with me ate up with hunting fever for bow season, I finally weighed my arrows. They weigh 30grams which converts to about 463 grains. I shoot out of a 55lbs draw. What weight do you guys shoot?

Your shooting about 8.4gr per lb which is a pretty heavy arrow these days when you consider IBO standard is 5gr/lb and AMO used to be might still be 7gr/lb. I'm shooting 6gr/lb.
At 8.4gr/lb your arrows will be slower but will maintain energy well down range.

&A is correct...Heavier arrow will be quieter and maintain energy better downrange helping with penetration .. if it shoots well out of your bow you are good.
