There are a few levels of sniper certification and from what I recall is each level allows you to advance chronologically in fps.
The standard fps is about 420
dmr is 450
Sniper is 475
Ba is 490

To reach those levels of certification you need to present a skills test and pass the applicable course. Sniper chic would be a good person to talk to regarding these or even thunder cactus.

As for performance, fps doesn't directly translate into performance. Bb weight, ballistic trajectory, air effeciency are vital factors. A 350 fps gun can shoot straight farther harder than a 400 fps Gun if the air seal and hop up are tuned better. The overall synergy and performance of the parts within your gun translate into the performance your looking for not soley the fps. Think of a nascar compared to a f1 car.

Damn sp beat me to it.
