What arrows?

I would like to start target shooting (only) using my ~50y/o Browning Wasp recurve bow. Are there any special specs for arrows I should purchase? Length? Flexibility? Weight? This is not a high-dollar application.

The bow is marked:

IT 4770
46#
56
AMO

I assume the 46# refers to the draw force, and the 56 to the bow length in inches (it measures 53" curved but not strung).
Also, what would basic accessories include?
Any help appreciated.

The bow is 46# at a 28"draw length. Do you know what your draw length is?

You want to get some gold tips made http://www.archerywarehouse.com/asse...SelChart14.pdf

Or shoot wood arrows. Making arrows is a whole separate hobby.
