I would like to know if my equipment is fine for large plains game.
Bow : Diamond Razor Edge
Arrow : Easton FMJ 340 500 grains
Speed : 210 FPS
KE : 47ke
I would also like a list of what plains game animals I can harvest with my bow.
Replies will really be appreciated
What is your draw length and what pounds are the bow set at.
I am expecting a lot more speed out of the Razor edge but it depends on the answers...Gerhard

Add a quality cut on impact broadhead to your heavy arrows and you are good to go for any plains game.
I shot kudu, gemsbok, zebra, impala and warthogs with my bow. I had no problem with penetration on the larger animals.
I shot a matthews switchback set at 58 pounds with 450 grain arrows. Montec broadheads.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.
I shoot a 23.5 inch draw length
And really honestly shoot 67 pounds
