Default Arrow Drop

Anyone have info on difference in arrow drop using the same arrow and broadhead in a 150lb, 175lb and 200lb crossbow. Lets say at 30 and 40 yards. Crossbow manufactured by same company but not need be the same model.

If you can get the speeds then you can go here and get relative figures.

There are ways you can determine that for your particular bow. For instance if you "0" exactly 4 inches high at 8 to 10 yards a150# strait bow will be shooting about 200 fps and will be dead on at 20 yds a 300fps bow will be dead on at 26-27 yds. This is the way all 3 of mine are sighted insince most of my shots are between 15 and 30 yds I use a regular 2 power rifle scope and know it is 2 inhes high at 15 yds and 2 inches low at 30yds [10 point and exocet 300fps] the other is an old barnett 150 pound strait bow xbow and I normally use it only forbowfishing and froging.
