Here's a website that will calculate the efficiency of your setup. http://backcountrybo.../articles/calc/
You'll need more information than what you have posted but this will get you in the ball park of what it can do.:peace:

That arrow weight and speed is actually very good for hunting. Going up to 315fps isn't going to flatten your trajectory any significant amount within hunting range.

If you try a lighter arrow to get 315fps you will loose some Kinetic Energy and Momentum.

You've got good numbers right now. Concentrate on broadhead tuning to optimize it's performance.

Sweet part is my rage broadhead and field points are all grouping together don't even have to tune em together I was surprised to see that but im perfectly okay with it lol and I like the numbers im shooting and I'm thinking I'm just going to crank the bow down to 70lbs and call it a day I'm satisfied with the way its shooting and don't feel the need to switch anything around just lighting the limbs up a bit more is all I will probly do.

Deer, elk, antelope, bear, and a few other critters, if you're up to it.

Good hunting!
