Sportco, your arguement does make sense. However proper compression also includes laminar airflow through the barrel. A stock 290fps HFC beretta can outrange, and has more accuracy than a stock 310fps CA M16, even though the barrel on the M16 is significantly longer.
The hard PROVEN fact, through experience in the field with shorter and longer barreled guns, through actual field testing, not through idle speculation and theory, is that you can get the same range and accuracy out of a shorter barrel than you can out of a longer one.

Where's Stalker when you need him?
Is that me? Lol, scanned over the entire thing, now I have to go back and actually READ! I did think about being a smartass and ask if I can get 300ft effective range out of a 0.30g BB leaving the barrel at about 250fps, but that's old.
