Got it sighted in for him today. Started out way low and kept filling down the front sight until I walked it in. The last three shots were in the same hole a hair left.

OK...when you said "HIM" I got confuddled...is this still YOUR 40"or your Son's 36"?

That target is from the scratch build that I just finished for my son and its a 40. The 36 was a build that I did for myself a while back.
