    When somebody says "400" grain arrow what does that mean??

    On here when someone says an arrow of certain weight does that generally include the broadhead weight to? Was just wondering.

    Not usaully talking about broadheads

    But for the most part there talking the total weight of the arrow and yes it could include a broadhead if it was a hunting thread.

    make sure you are not confusing this with a 400 spine arrow

    One grain eguals 1/7000 of a pound. So the 400 grain arrow weights 0.914 ounces.

    By the way, on here I would just ask the individual if he was giving total arrow weight or the weight of the arrow without the broadhead. If you are looking in a DNR manual and they don't state total arrow weight and you need to know then to be safe you have to get a clarification from DNR.
