Kinetic energy.

Velocity doesn't hurt. Mass x Velocity hurts. If you set a velocity maximum of 400 fps with .2's, and your gun shoots 400 fps with .3's, the kinetic energy of the 0.3 is 1/3 greater than with .2's.

That's the short of it.

Here's a LARGE breakdown of it, with calculator:

r skal rsa, s er annars vill
f ea fjr hafa. Sjaldan liggjandi lfur
lr um getur n sofandi maur sigur.
