Default Weight range of Carbon Force arrows

I just bought a dozen of the Carbon Force Extreme arrows. They are the 300 size. I haven't had them cut yet, nor do they have any nocks or inserts installed. They are just the shafts and have 3- 4" vanes.

Straightness of +-, .003
Nocks weigh 13 grains
Inserts 11 grains

Just for something to do, since it's been raining for three days, I decided to weigh these arrows. I got out my handy RCBS balance scales and weighed all 12 arrows. I was a little surprised by what I found.

This is what I got for the 12 arrows in grains.

279, 273, 285, 281, 280, 279, 280, 281, 288, 270, 278, and 279.

The average is 279.4 grains, but what makes me concerned is the range of 18 grains from the lightest of 270, to the heaviest of 288.

Should I be concerned about this?? I was able to get 8 arrows with a +, - of 3 grains, which will be my primary arrows, but............

What do you all think??

Thanks, Kev

When you get them cut you should weigh them again and they may be a little closer but if there not you can shave a little off of the end to get them about the same weight, thats what this guy at the shop here did and he got them all exactly the same.

Bigbuck90,
So, if I understand this correctly, the arrows would all be different lengths then?

If this is the case, wouldn't that make each arrow have a different spine?

Thanks, Kev

For what we're paying for good arrow's these day's i would expect them to be alot closer than that .I agree that if you have to shave them that they'll be different length's and that's just not exceptable in my opinion .I'm assuming that these wieght's are without your field point's or broadheads and even if it did include them I'd still find them on the light side for my setup.

NUBO,
These weights are without points, inserts and nocks. Just the shafts and fletching.

With an average weight of 279 grains, add in 11 for inserts, 13 for nocks and 125 grain points, this gives me a weight of 428 grains. I thought that this was an acceptable weight?
