Good Morning,

I'm new to bowhunting and have a question. Has anyone tried the deep six fmj's at 30"/70lb. I know the easton calculator puts me in a 300 spine for a 30" arrow, but the FMJ's stop at 330. Calculator says I can go down to 29" and be just fine. Anyone have any experience with this combination of draw length and arrow? Can I get away with shooting a 29" with a 30" draw? Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.

1st off, FMJ's are overpriced, over hyped and not all that durable, but you should be fine at 330 spine and 29" arrow at 70# unless you have some sort of out of the ordinary rest configuration. You don't need 70# to kill a deer either. If you have to get in an awkward position in order to get a shot , you could find the 70# hard to deal with.

I am shooting a #70 bowtech specialist my draw is 30" and I have a qad hdx. D6 fmj,s cut at 28.5 chrono'd 310. Turned out to be a great combo just be sure to get a target that will stop them.

I own Dsix FMJ's...I'm gonna finish this season with them, then I'm getting something else...I agree with foamroam. They are fragile.

I've been shooting the regular FMJ's since they came out. I bent my first one ever this year when I shot my buck. I hit the off shoulder and didn't get a pass thru. I'm sure it bent running throught the woods. I absolutely love them and will not be changing any time soon. My brother in law shoots the FMJ deep six and has had no issues.
