Distance of shooting

Hello guys,

i have done a search thru the forum but did not found a thread who answer my question !

I have bought a M4 and upgraded it a bit ( moto and inner barrel 6.03 Madbull )

Now i dont own a chrono as of right now so here is the test i made from home but i have no reference as it good or not.

From 25 feet on a soda can : '' semi '' = i damage the can but the BB do NOT penetrate the can. In '' auto '' the BB make some hole in and there. But its very very accurate ( i can aim the up or bottom af the can at will )


From 60 feet i can see my BB fall when arriving at the can, i still can hit the can anf make some damage but its not hard.

The question is ? is it normal for the BB to make there way down at 60 feet ?

Whats the '' normal '' distance you can make with a M$ and i mean '' normal'' or acceptable !

Thanks for taking the time to read my thread !

Turn your hop up on about half way and see what happens.

If your hop up is already on... then you've got something wrong. 60 feet is under half of what you should expect for a flat trajectory.

Don't forget that the weight of the bb also affect range and power.

You'll likely only knock it over leaving a shallow dent at that range. To pierce it you have to use a high powered airsoft gun and heavy BBs.

Ok so its normal, i just need to fix the hop up but the impact i am getting at 60 feet seams normal because i dent the can at 60 feet.

Only way to tell what FPS your gun is shooting at is a chrono.

Spring, Cylinders, Piston Heads. making it a tighter seal will increase your distance...


Set up various targets and then just use a measuring tape to see how far you are shooting..


Move your hop up forward to adjust the straightness of your shots..


Simple Simon yo!!

Having good compression leads to maximum air distribution down your barrel. But it will not increase range if your shooting a bb that is to light - Law of Inertia.

Hop-up also has a major factor in improving range - this is due to the Bernoulli Effect. It has no effect on accuracy. If your barrel is in crooked, your hop-up will just hook bb's off into the direction that your barrel is off by. Adjusting the hop-up won't straighten your shots it will just make it hook more.

Simplest way to measure distance is toe to heel, will give you a close number (unless you are like me and have 12" boots).
