I shoot the heaviest arrow that I can keep 270-280 fps. The big heads I like don't fly good at 300FPS. In my current bow its a 525 gr arrow. I shot a 425gr arrow and it shoot good I shot a 297 vegas round with it but its just tamer and more forgiving around 270-280. Its just what I like and my Hoyt like it more importantly.

Good discussion.
Bows don't shoot flat no matter how fast they are. You have to know how far and use the correct pin or in my case move the sight. Makes no difference to the deer my tape goes to 90 yards and while I would never shoot a deer that far I shoot my target there all the time just like I did with a 425 gr arrow last year. I just feel like if I have to adjust the sight whats it matter? I put the shark in the goodies of a doe at 44 today. If UGA can win it will be a fine day!

The easy way to figure it out.

Drag decreases the number due to friction a the arrow gets farther out.
