In a rifle the ballistic coefficient and weight of the bullet determine how much it drops down range.
For example a lighter bullet might have less drop for the first 2-300 yards but then hit much lower than a heavier bullet once it gets out to 4-600 yards.
I would like to know if the same concept would apply to arrows. I suspect there would be some similarities.
You only need to get behind a bow and shoot heavier arrows to realize how much the trajectory changes. The pins on my sight, going from a 350 to 550 grain arrow, are MUCH more spread out. The 20 yard pin moved down a bit, but the 30, 40, 50, and 60 all spread out A LOT. And my bow shoots those arrows at about 270fps at that.
