well we would have to know how much your arrow weighs to be able to answer your question

uh... we're gonna need more information than that... namely your total arrow weight in grains.

heres a helpful website for determing kinetic energy, f.o.c., speed and a few other things.

If your shooting heavy arrows its enough. Otherwise just use rage and aim for the guts. According to the posts they go threw 98% of the deer.

Thanks guys and to the guy who thinks kinetic energy is no big deal. You can shove it. I want my arrow to pass through completely... PERIOD And if my bow can't do that with mechanicals i'll just use my trusty SLICK TRICKs.
