Sorry, there is nothing incorrect in what I said.

Explain please why my M16A3 PTW will shoot 0.25g BB at 497 fps but will shoot a .20g at 530 fps? 20% decrease in BB mass but only a 6.6% increase in velocity? Don't worry, I already know the answer.

My old Marui G3 shot 265 with 0.25g and 295 with .20g. Same BBs (I haven't changed brands in years). Same 20% decrease in mass, but now an 11% increase in velocity.

Not all guns are consistant, and you can't say across the board that an X change in weight = a set velocity change.

Democracy is two wolves and a sheep discussing what's for dinner.

Freedom is the wolves limping away while the sheep reloads.

Never confuse freedom with democracy.
