Default acceptable distance for 9' 5 wt.

I been practicing for almost three months now, and have seen great improvement. I'm using 9 ft. rod with 5 wt. WF line, and casting fairly accurately at 35-40 feet. There's a bare spot in the grass about 18-20 inches in diameter, and I can hit it fairly consistently.

My question is, what distance should I expect out of my equipment? It seems that when I try to stretch the distance by a foot or so, everything goes to...well, I've seem to have hit a wall at 40 ft.
