Thanks for all the advice. It's probably a combination of my shooting and a few final tweaks. Checked the spacer between the limb and riser and it doesn't stick out at all. I am shooting the firebolt arrows with the stock 150 grain field points. I will be back at it this weekend and see if i can improve any.

I switched from a rolled up blanket to a sandbag and now I'm in the 2 inch group range at 20 yards.

Thanks for all the advice

Nice! Good to hear your groups are getting tighter. :)

Its because of pics like that I decided I will not be shooting groups, I cannot afford to keep buying new arrows.

I only started shooting my x-bow two weeks ago, and it was real windy out, and I think my Exocet did real well at 20yrds.

Thank you, but before you swell my head, this was off a bench, not free hand :) . Now if I can do this at 30 and 40yards I will be happy, but that day it was real windy and I noticed at 20 there was not much arrow movement, but at 30 and 40yds the wind did not affect my horizontal, but did push my arrow about 3 inches vertically.
