Exclamation Arrow Build

Creating a new arrow setup... asking for input from the gurus.
hoyt defiant turbo
72lbs
28" draw

Victory RIPXV 300 spine @ 7.0 GPI
cut to 28"
Thinking blazer vanes
100 grain tip
qad tuna a nock @ 4 grains
black eagle rampage renegade half out insert @ 58 grains

If i am calculating correctly this should put me at a light 376 grains yet still hard hitting

319.6 FPS
.53 momentum
85ftlbs KE

guess im asking for the guys that build arrows every day are my calcs correct? if so where did i go wrong?

thanks
KAS

i already have a mess of Solid legends ima use just because of warranty... i have yet to find if the standard broadhead will fit in this smaller diameter arrow tho but i guess goin to a 58 grain insert would give me the same result as a 125 grain broadhead

I don’t want to steal the thread but I’ve been looking at these arrows also, almost the exact build but was gonna use the victory 60gr inserts.

Stoof could you run that program on that same arrow but with a PSE DNA, 61lbs, 29” dl, please sir. I’d appreciate it. I don’t want to drop the money on any more arrows than I have to. Thanks.

The only reason I didnít use the victory outsert was bc I wanted a smooth end of shaft that thing catches on targets etc imo
