Help on weight vs speed for my bow/arrow combo #archery

Question for you guys. I have been playing with my Bowtech Realm X. Not quite sure what setup i should go with based on the speeds im getting out of it. Here are the specs. 70# 28" draw bow. Performance setting. Shooting Black Eagle Rampage arrows with Brass HIT inserts. All the speeds were measured using my LabRadar.

arrow wt pt wt speed IBO speed
599g 200g 242fps 348 fps
549g 150g 252fps 341 fps
524g 125g 258fps 339 fps

Initially i was a little disappointed on the speed, but looking at the IBO calc, its right where it should be-ish. I put a nominal 10g of bow string wt with a peep and loop. might be a little low, but increasing it only increases the IBO, so this would be worst case.

Now the question is, for out west elk hunting, which combo would you use? I had wanted to be right at 600g which is what I was shooting for when i ordered everything (didn’t miss the mark to bad with 599g!). As I started sighting in the bow, i was noticing how much drop i was getting as i go out the range. Its just more than i really want with having to shoot from anywhere from 20ish out to 80 plus yards.

Any thoughts?
