I am looking to buy some new arrows for hunting. I am looking to buy some Victory VAP arrows with the penetrator inserts. My specs so far: 2012 Elite Answer, 60 DW, 27.5 DL, and roughly 80g on the string (peep, D loop, string+cable leeches)
VAP 400s 6.9 gpi cut to 26.5 inches and with the inserts they would be 27.5 inches total length. Fob Starrflights, arrow wrap, and the nocks that comes with the arrows. The base arrow without the inserts at this point are 322g.
Total Arrow Specs:
355g total arrow weight w/the 33g aluminum insert
133g upfront on the arrow
355g = 262 FPS w/54 kinetic energy
414g total arrow weight w/the 92g SS steel insert
192g upfront on the arrow
414g = 244 FPS w/55 kinetic energy
Please let me know what arrow you would chose and why. I understand about the, "heavier the arrow, the more KE". My problem is, do I use the aluminum or SS steel insert. Losing 18 FPS worth the 1 more KE. Bending the aluminum inserts or having the SS steel inserts. Any advance would be great.
