You can get broad heads for archery bows from the historical re-enactment societies suppliers who do the bodkins and horse droppers in forged iron, as for top heavy most of the bigger arrows with broad heads were designed for unseating knights, and were fired volley fashion in a parabolic tragectory ( aim high fire a volley in a big arcing clod down into the enemies cavalry) for direct fire bodkins were used to good effect as armour piercing anti personal rounds.

Your going to need a very powerful bow to push them buggers, olde worlde archers had to use 100 ft lb lowgbows to do it for them.
