You brought up stability, so I gave you an example of a projectile with little stability. And it still flies far. Your theory doesn't make sense in this real world application.

Okay, so you presented an idea. now explain it. How does Laminar airflow make the BB go farther? Explain the science behind that. As far as anyone can tell, that only helps with accuracy.

Systema and PDI made their 6.04 and 6.05 barrel to give Laminar airflow between the BB and barrel like you said. So you're idea is valid and true. However, both Systema and PDI presented it for ACCURACY, not range. In fact, PDI goes as far as saying 6.05 is only for Accuracy and 6.01 is for RANGE because it gives you more FPS.

Now explain your laminar airflow suggestion and how it gives you more range? Prove the maker of PTW and One of the highest quality upgrade parts manufacturer wrong for me. I would love to hear your suggestion.

This, I agree 100% with.
