    Depending on exactly which plains game, i would think you would want arrow weights and broadheads (out of a compound) around 450-650.

    Dox,
    I used arrows with a total wieght of 445 grains. My bow is set on 58 pounds. I blew through warthog and impala like butter. Drove the arrow into the oppsite shoulder bone on my kudu so deep the skinner said he couldnt get it out without pliers. Shot me zebra quartering away hard. Went through last rib, stomach, chest cavity with the point barley breaking the skin in front of far side shoulder.
    I have walked in the tracks of the elephant, heard the lion roar and met the buffalo on his terms. I shall never be the same.
