So I am narrowing down my arrow set up for this years whitetail hunting in Kansas. I have only killed a few deer with a bow and previously shot lighter arrows but had penetration issues.
Bow is a 2018 Hoyt Hyperforce, 28"dl, 70lbs. Easton FMJ 330 cut to 28.5", blazers, shooting magnus buzzcut. I hunt from a treestand 90% of the time, max shot on a deer is 40 yards.

The 465 Grain is with a 100gr broadhead
The 490 Grain is with a 125gr broadhead
The 515 Grain is with a 150gr broadhead

If you suggest a different option please list it and a reason.

I appreciate your help here.

I'd go with either the 465 or 490. You might be pushing weak spine with the 150 grain head.

490 probably, I really like tuning arrows int the 270 FPS range. Sub 280 just seems to tune real easy.

those weights with that bow and that head, doesnt really matter. id use the 100gr head for ability to use other heads and not have to retune/resight.
