I was able to get 0.30g BBs out to around 300ft in my CA M24 when I had downgraded it to 340fps, and was tweaking the hop up before the game. I was impressed! Mind you the BBs were flying past in a rough 20ft area at that distance, but still, I pretty much dispelled the fps = range myth. Hop up setting and BB weight are literally the determining factor for range. FPS just gives you the power to extend your effective range with greater wind resistance, after the 'power' drops off the hop up effect is what carries your BB farther. Hell, I had my rifle shooting 580fps for one large game, using 0.36g Bbs, never hit a thing, even though I was shooting at guys 200ft away, BBs were all over the place and the air currents didn't help either.
