    Do you have the fast dual cams or the single cam? What's the IBO speed?

    well for every 3 grains or so of arrow weight, you gain or lose 1 fps, so -30 for the 400 gr arrow, -20 for the 2 inches of draw length. Probably 5-10 fps for the stuff on your string. I'm guessing about 245 fps or a little less.

    Mach 3 would be a good starting point
