Default 27" draw length, 27" arrow...

I have some target arrows that are 27". My bow draw length is also 27". Could I shoot these? If not where could I get some longer target arrows?

I dare say you can still use them but a lot will depend on what sort of a rest you are going to use.

All I can say when you have your bow set up try one and see if it is long enough.

If you want to shoo those arrows, get yourself an overdraw!

usealy the pivot point where the rest prongs balence the front of the arrow are 1 3/4 inches shorter than actual draw , as an example I shoot a 28inch draw bow , useing 27 inch arrows and they still have 3/4 inch clearance to the rest , so if your bow is truely a 27 inch draw { they seldom are on the money } you would have 1 3/4 inches to spare .

if ur rest is set back towards u a little, u should have enough length from the arrow to shoot without having to worry about pulling back too far and pulling it off the rest
