I agree with the others. Shot placement is the key.  I only have my bow set at 65# mainly for comfort and ease of drawing back.  If you are not comfortable, you can not make a good shot.  My bow only shoots about 265, but I've made pass throughs on many of the deer I've shot.  DT

Shoot placement and shooting within your capabilities are the keys in my mind

placement and quiet,I shoot 527 grains and want pass through's because older bucks have much more stamina.With two holes it's easier to follow blood trail and an exit cut may mean the difference between hitting an artery or deflating the lungs on a pass through.
