Question about broadheads- and crossbow

I recently bought a 12pk of Hyperdermic broadheads that look and operate like the Rage ones. I was wondering if anyone has any experience with these (much cheaper) broadheads? From just looking at the two side by side, they look basically the same.
I also finally got to shoot my Storm Rdx at more than 20 yards. I quickly noticed that at 20 and 30 yards I have to use the 20 yard dot - and both the 20 and 30 will hit dead on... and at 40 yards I have to split the difference between the first two dots. I haven't gone beyond 40 yards yet, but from 20 to 40 i'm keeping 1-inch groups. Anyone else's scope the same way?

Re: Question about broadheads- and crossbow

Not sure why your Storm is shooting so flat but not is not a bad problem to have. You may try sighting in the top dot for 30 and see where the others fall. Of that works from 10-30 yards you can just hold pretty much dead on.

Other option is you prefer perfect 20/30/40/50 yard reticle is to break down amd buy a scope with the speed dial on it

I put a Zeiss scope on mine with the speed dial so I have it hitting right at 20/30/40 etc... I didn't shoot it with the factory scope.

dpms, you wouldn't have an extra dead-sled cocking devise that you'd sell would you? I want one of the ones that tie right to each side of the sled.
