Best way to visuallise it.

Try hitting someone with a 45lbs weight in your hand. Slow, but devastating.
Now, hit the poor bastard with a 2lbs leather wip. Fast and paintfull.

So what?

The eavyer you hit, the more energy is transfered and the more damage is done. The lighter the hit, less damage.

We feel pain differently though. Both BBs will be painfull, but heavyer BBs are more prone to leave a mark on bare skin at equal velocities.

All that mess would be solved if we forget about fps and think only about joules.
