Question VAP Configs...want input from the pros please?

I just got in a dozen .500 spine VAP V1's with Flex-Fletch 225's and 120/130/140gr Tophat break-off target points....

weight with 140gr point inserted plus 3 vanes...

and while I'm fairly certain I already know how I'm going to configure them?...I'd like to hear some pro/con opinions if I'm on the right track here?...or not.

Things to take into consideration...

A. These are intended for field use only off my Tempest BB rig equipped with Hex7 limbs..."Shorts"...making a 66"/38# SR rig.

B. I'll be Gapping not SW'ing.

Now it appears I have 2 options here...I can either leave them at their full length of 31" and run 120gr points or?...lop 1/2" off and run the full 140gr point weight and while a 20gr difference doesn't seem like much? full weight they will represent a 350gr/9.21gpp arrow or at 330grs?...they will represent a 8.68gpp arrow where my conundrum is...

While running them 1/2" shortened with 140gr points?....they seem to tame these Hex7 shorts by a noticeable level making a smoother shooting rig but?...

What I don't know is how badly this might impact long distance trajectory on say a 900rd.
