What one and why?

I would go with Victory RIP's with the 60 grain half outs that are a flush fit to the shaft. Depending on what you are going to do with them and how many pounds you are going to shoot they make XV's, 3DHV's and standard in .204" ID. The problem with the Vap's are the outserts, even if you get the stainless ones, they are hard to pull out of targets. Full metal jackets can bend. The victories are spine aligned and have very tight tolerances. Ethics archery as well as BE Rampage stainless inserts are the way to go.

FMJ. 50gr. Insert. Been shooting them for years. Great arrow. Yes they will bend but not very easy at all. They won’t explode either

Shot the VAP's for a while. Good arrows. Go with the SS outserts. The aluminum ones will bend.

Been shooting the VAPs for a while. They are a good arrow. I would use an outsert or the deep six insert, and avoid the halfouts. FMJ are nice but they will bend if you aren't careful, and they are also a heavy arrow

VAP's are a great arrow in my opinion. I have hunted a couple years with them and use them for 3D as well. I use the stainless outserts on mine, I think they pull easier than standard arrows because the point and outsert are larger than the shaft.

The VAP's are a very tough arrow and they have outstanding penetration on animals.
