And for a BB with a backspin, lots of guns are are happiest (aka. shooting the farthest) sitting at around 360fps w/0.20g BBs, and the guys are running those guns with 0.28g BBs. I had my MP5A5 shooting 360fps and clearing 0.28g BBs past 200ft easily a few years back. My other MP5 with the longer tightbore in it and shooting close to 400fps was barely reaching 150ft.
QFT. My G36 is sitting around 360FPS with a tightbore, and my range and accuracy with 0.28g is excellent.
