Adding Weight to Arrows #archery

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Calculated my FOC last night and it is coming up at 8-9% with a 100 grain head. As you can imagine I want to increase that significantly for a hunting arrow. Total arrow weight is in the neighborhood of 400 grains.

The arrows are Buck Addiction by Victory. They are a 350 spine with a 6.2mm or .245" ID. What is the best way to add a good amount of weight to these arrows?

Does increasing tip weight (going from 115 grains to 200 grains of point and weighted insert) increase the FOC in a linear fashion? Say I add 50% more weight in the tip, does the FOC also increase by 50%?

I have played with the Victory spine calculator and my arrows should be able to hold more weight. My DL is fairly short and my bow is not a speed demon, so I think it will be okay.

I am hesitant to make big changes mid season, until I get a good setup I will continue shooting small fixed broadheads, but in the future I would like to shoot big mechs without worry of penetration. I spined a buck earlier this year, got plenty of penetration with a Montec, but my follow up shot with a Swacker did not pass through.
