Joe;

Let me suggest if you are going for 100 yards that you zero at 50 or (75 if you have that much adjustment) and establish a hold over aiming point because your point of impact at that distance will be about 50 inches lower than it is with a 30 yard zero, at the velocities you are achieving with that rifle.  If you can achieve a 75 yard zero your hold off will be about 4.4 mil dots at 100 yards.

Also wind drift at that muzzle velocity and range computes to about 3 inches per mile per hour of full value wind.

You are shooting groups which are somewhere around 1.5 MOA (3/4 inch (dime sized)) at 40 yards.  With no wind and perfect shooting that is going to translate to an inch and a half at 100 yards.  That WILL be darned impressive. 

I am looking forward to seeing them as they will be the best outdoor springer groups I have ever seen at that range.  Go Joe!
