Quoted for truth. That right there is the key. You can have 500+ fps velocity, but if you don't have your hopup tuned right, your BB will either hit the ground at 50-74 feet, or turn skywards. It's all about finely tuning the hopup for the best performance with the BB weight you're using and the velocity of the gun.

My 2 longest range guns also happen to be my 2 lowest fps guns. My custom built C8 shoots about 325 with .2, and my Real Sword Type 56 shoots 310. They have better range than my 380 fps guns.
