I am planning on buying a Bengal very soon. I haven't seen alot of speed numbers other than IBO advertised speed. I plan on shooting 70LB, 29" and an Easton carbon at 380grs. What speed can I reasonably expect to obtain from this setup. I do realize that setup and tuning can change things some, just looking for something in the ballpark from people who OWN Bengals.

That is my set up to the T except for arrows, and I have mine stretched out to 29-1/4. Mine are 460 grains.

I haven't chrono'd the bow yet, not that it matters.:) If I had to guess, I'd say I'm upper 270s going off the pin gap.
