Frankly, I think your arrows are too light. 75# is a heavy bow but I think your penetration will suffer. Kenetic energy is great, but momentum is your friend.

although you meet the minimum IBO arrow weight for your draw weight I too believe your total arrow weight is too light. I'd opt for an arrow around 450 gr total. Your bow will be quieter and will be under less stress with the heavier arrow. Probably shoot better too.
