i shoot a magnatec and pull about 65 or 66 and when we figured out my KE is was right around 72 or 73

Not really enough info from anybody to tell..........
We need draw length,draw weight, arrow weight,and arrow speed to tell if you are getting close to what your set-up should be producing.

Your figures are correct and are right about normal for a bow with an ibo of 308.You may be a little on the low side with your speed but it really depends on how much you have on your string and how accurate your bow scale is.

As long as the arrows are tuned,you will love the penetration.



I should know,that is the same ke I have had for the past couple years and it does a wonderful job.I also have been using Rocket wolverine 3-p' s (expandable).Also,the arrow you have chosen will do an awesome job.
