On deer, no doubt. On bigger game, yes as well, unless you hit big bone :darkbeer:

More than enough for deer. The last 10 years my hunting arrows weigh in at 338 gr. I have pass thru's 90% of the time. The ones that didn't hit big bone on the far side , still dead deer.

Thats plenty of weight. I've shot most of my deer with a 28", 65 to 70# rigs shooting arrows slightly less than that and have never had any problems.

If your a short draw guy like me its about the norm for average hunting arrows and heads....I am a 374 grains in my current setup and have taken both elk and deer so far.

I am sure I am shooting much slower speeds here than most.
