The right arrow set up for Elk

Just wondering if an Easton axis 400 tipped with a 100gr. fixed blade broad head shot at 286ft./sec. is suitable for elk. Just concerned about the small shaft of the arrow. Is the 100gr. tip enough or should I be looking @ 125gr.

Re: The right arrow set up for Elk

Your set up is real close to mine and that should be a great setup. The smaller diamter arrows are great for better penetration. My arrows weight a total of 468.00 grains, and I have right around 70lbs of KE at 10yards! Should be an elk killer in my book.

That should do the job just fine with the 100gr head, weigh the whole arrow with broadhead installed, 400gr total weight is sufficient.

I use the Easton Infused tipped with a 100 gr. N.A.P. Nitron and its a great set up!
