Default Arrow help

I'm looking to buy some more carbon arrows. I need 1/2 of some carbon express. I want to get a quality arrow that will produce the correct speed and accuracy for my setup. Right now I am shooting carbon express mutiny 250's cut down to 27 1/2. Here is my specs of my bow:

2012 PSE Stinger 3G
IBO: 314
Current speed: about 260 fps
Weight: 60#
Draw length: 27"
NAP drop away rest

My question is should I be shooting 250's? And what arrow would you recommend? My mutiny arrows are shooting fine but I am down to 3 arrows and need to know wether to buy more or switch to a new type.

I kind of wanted to stick with carbon arrows, but what are the benefits/ differences of FMJ arrows? Never shot any before...

Seems to me that 250s at 27"/60 lbs might be a bit over spined--
