I ran .25's in it, and that thing could reach out farther than most of the players around me. 330, if you take the time to properly tune your hopup, will be just fine. Congrats on getting a VFC, by the way. That thing should last you a good long while.
Thanks Danneichh! the VFC is a very cool gun. and as a first gun it was a bit pricier but all research that I did suggested that it would be something that would last for a while and I could grow into.

definitely will play with and tune the hop up if I change out the spring. another member suggested to just get another gun specifically for CQB. that could be an option as well.

In Cqb the fps limit is mostly around 350 +/-, I would recommend getting A m90 spring, 20 fps more indoors doesn't really matter, m90 springs put less stress. so why not?

Also you don't need to get a chrono, look up the Pop Can chrono, works real well, look for the video that Airsoftgi made, really helpful.
unfortunately the field that we are on (CQB) and the organizers have made it mandatory that anything shot inside needs to shoot at 330 or under. the idea for the m90 spring would be cool since it would put less stress on the internals. never heard of the pop can chrono but will look up some clips.

and a popcan chrony is okay for getting an idea of what yer gun shoots but doin thay and findin out yer gun shoots "around" 350 then gettin the the indoor facility and being turned away because yer shootin 365 isnt all that helpfull especially for a new player. Some of the guys who have been around a long while can probably be trusted to use a slightly hot gun safely but nobody is gonna let "the new guy" who has little to no experiance use a hot gun maybe +5 fps but thats about it the are more likely to make a bad choice in a heavy fire fight and hit someone with a long burst or in the face/head area and cause injury. Most hosts wouldnt risk that i dont think thats why limits are set to begin with so folks dont get hurt.
yeah being turned away to play for the first time would not be fun. Im all about player safety. this is a game after all. personally I have no issues complying with the rules of the field or the organizers. really just looking forward to have some fun and meet some new people.

Thanks again guys for all the tips and info
