It depends on the bow.
What year/make/model bow do you have ? Do you have the owner's manual ?
With respect to tuning it depends on a lot of things... Draw weight, draw length, arrow spine, point weight, etc... You will likely need to adjust your sight/pin(s) for the slower arrow at the reduced speed at minimum.
You can always try it and see how well your arrows fly and how your grouping is and make adjustments from there.
