it really depends what they want to charge you with...
you mentioned criminal charges.... that implies the Criminal Code and thus 500 fps OR 5.7 joules.
RCMP Forensics lab test I heard uses .23g But Seriously They SHOULD USE JEOULES INSTEAD OF FPS, why? Because I think we should all go out there now get .88g 6mm and say a M150 Systema PTW makes 110fps. I dunno? 2J as max is already good enough, better than the Japan or UK with such low fps limit
