The crossbow will go out to 50, but I'd only take it to 40.
Most modern compounds have it all over most modern crossbows in range. I say most because there are a few exceptions like that PSE AR-15 rig and some of the Strykers. The PSE thing is way too long for practical hunting IMO. Not sure about the Strykers, but they're very expensive too.
