Correct. Velocity has little to do with range. A good hopup sleeve will have far more effect on the gun's range than its velocity. My weakest gun is my Real Sword Type 56 (100% stock shooting 305-310 fps) and it will outrange any of my AEGs. I'm not sure how far it shoots, as the BB is out of sight before it drops. In close second place is my custom C8 shooting at 325 fps. This gun has a sick range as well.
