has anyone used those crimson field points that have a cut for right hand turn?
you shouldn't use those tips for 3-d, they will destroy the targets
420 grains is 6 grains / pound at 70 pounds. Not unusal for single cam bows due to the massive force being applied to the arrow. Its not hard to hit 6 GPP. I would suggest lowering your draw weight though. There is no need for 70 pounds. I shoot 62 for everything.
Carbons will be hard enough to pull out of targets without adding extra KE and you will probably only lose 10 - 20 fps by dropping it. (btw you would need at least 372 grain arrow)
As for arrows... you get what you pay for. If you buy cheap arrows you'll get cheap arrows. GoldTip makes an EXCELLET arrow and lots of different quality levels so it will hit what you are looking for. Carbon Express makes a GREAT shaft as well but they are pricey.
