If you're gun is putting the proper amount of air (every time) down the barrel the BB will be riding on the same air every time, people with major air leaks or an inconsistent sealing piston head will not have sufficient air to push the BB out of the barrel properly so there's a chance it'll contact the barrel and greatly effect range/accuracy.
understandable. But what you are saying is, a 250 FPS consistent gun, will consistently shoot up to 150feet maximum(For example). But if a 400FPS gun is also just as consistent, with the good choice of hop up parts, will go to(for abstract example), 200feet maximum.

Because do you not also agree that,

a 50 FPS gun will shoot farther than a 10 FPS gun? That is pretty much common sense, even if the hop up is doing its proper job, the result is quite clear.
