The most common grains of broadheads would be 100 or 125. However, I have used broadheads that weighed from 90-145. Personally I prefer the 100 grains. I shoot 65lbs with a 28.5 inch arrow. I have not had any problems passing through a deer. Also are you considering cut on contact, replaceable blade or mechanical...it all makes a difference.

You need to give a little more information than that. Arrow length, drawlength, fletching size, and then maybe we get a better idea.

I have tried to shoot a Muzzy 100 and 125 and they both fly off to the left.A slick trick I used sot fairly well though.It was 100 gr.But I am a muzzy believer and wondered if I should try a lighter Muzzy

I have the Hoyt Vectix, 28" Draw @ 68 lbs and I switched to 100gr Rage three blade expandables with the o-ring. Last year I was shooting a PSE and used a Synper 100gr 2 blade and it did the job pretty quick, he only ran about 30 yards before he expired. My hunting partner shot his buck with the same snyper and it didn't go far either. Hopefully, I'll let you know if a few weeks how the 3 blade rages do. The synper and rage are the same company now.

Given the info you provided, you are probably under-spined the way it is, so I wouldn't go more than 100gr (increasing the tip weight will weaken your arrow even more). This may be the reason you are shooting off to the left. Try decreasing your draw weight down to about 60lbs and see how they fly. If you are set on shooting 64lbs, I would step up to the 340 spine.
