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.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
