Both of you are correct according to ILLusion's tests in the thread linked in my last post. Apparently the hop-up has to be turned all the way up or else the bb will fall short.

edit: It should be noted that the rifling isn't actually for giving the bb any sort of rotation in the way that rifling does in RS guns. It's for ensuring even airflow around the bb while it passes through the barrel to float it through.
