Default Arrow penetration vs. weight

Made up some arrows to see if heavier would dig deeper. 3 arrows. One 2216 [email protected] 560's, one 2216 AL. @ 530's and one a Beman carbon @ 435. I even put a bigger head on the 560 to increase the foc. The 435 went around 3"'s deeper that the others. The heavier grouped as well as some here claimed they would and as I expected left the bow quieter, but the drop at yardages over 20 is too much for me and the penetration isn't better. They also make too much noise when drawn. Never checked speed.

Glad I did it. Have been wanting some varmint shafts. I will say this for the 2216's, I can find them a whole lot easier.
