Would like to build a arrow with 500 grains at 27 inch in length. I know I could use an online arrow selector but just seeing what others use to get this weight.
i'm shooting those now, and have the past few years, never had a problem with them, and they have gone through a few elk easily. another good option for sure.Gol Tip Kentic Kaos 28" .300 spine with outsert and a 125 grain head with three blazer vanes and a lighted nock will get you right at 500 grains.
This works. I shoot 27" 2314's for hunting. 510 grainsAluminum arrows in that weight range are tougher than you think. A 2315 in the 27 inch range will put you around 480 - 525 depending on how you set it up.....ie point weight vanes etc
No brass inserts, heavy hard to find points, etc they are simply made that heavy to start with and that's why I still use them. If I were going to shoot a 430 grain arrow I would never even consider them....too fragile. I have killed 3 deer this year with 2315's and all the arrows I washed off the blood and spun tested them and they are right back in the quiver. The way people bend the thicker walled aluminum is hitting them with other arrows.......easy fix....don't group shoot....in time you'll quit doing that anyway. Unless you like to repair arrows & waste money.
I know you probably won't go there but there are other benefits they offer as well. The main problem is they offer too many spine choices and so your dealers bailed out REAL quick so they could carry less stock. So you asked for opinions and that's mine. Good luck.
