I've had it happen too. I forget what arrow/broadhead combo I was using, but it didn't cause any problems.

You will be just fine. The only problem i could see happening is if the arrow shaft OD was bigger then the broad head OD. This could damage your shaft.

It's normal w/ small diam shafts, I used them last yr. w/ A/C/C's and were wider than the shaft. I had zero problems and 2 dead deer.
