I dont see how this is cheating nor is it moronic, everyone chonos with .25s so it is a level field. it is the exact same as a field that says you must chrono with .12 as long as the messurement that each person is being judged by is the same then there is no issue.

but thank you to those who posted and explained why .2 are the measurement system that is in place. I will change out the springs as that seams to be what most have said that were helpful rather then bashing fields.

and as for the fields, I believe that both flagswipe and Adrenaline use .2 to measure.

I also have read some fields will allow for snipers to go to 450 even read one field 500....

My field allows AEGs up to 450 w/ .2g (with MED of 30 ft) and bolt actions up to 550fps w/ .2's, but they have an MED of 75 feet. Pistols are 350 fps /w .2g max, with an MED of 10ft or "don't be a dick" distance.
