I would have liked to sticky this however there are too many variables that can change (i.e. FPS, bb size, installation, target size, hop up adjustment, etc.) In my opinion the hop up adjustment is what helped/deteriorated performance the most. Since these are relatively long distances, even the slightest maladjustment of the hop up will have a significant negative affect.
I am simply reporting my findings :tup:
From my other tests at 250ft and 300ft, the 6.08mm and 6.03mm were head-to-head (although much lower hit % than previous distances, but still better than the rest.) In certain trials the 6.03 performed better and in the other trials the 6.08 performed better. The 6.05mm stock performed atrociously and the 6.01mm wasn't too far behind in comparison to the 6.05mm.
This basically confirms (at least from these tests):
- Barrel quality matters the most
- A 6.01mm barrel is fine, but at further distances the performance plummets.
- High quality 6.08mm barrels begin to show their worth at further distances
- Stock barrels are usually okay, but if you plan on shooting further than 100ft, I would recommend buying a high quality barrel
- There is a slight factor of "luck" when shooting very far. At 250 feet for example, I once managed to get 8/10 with the 6.05mm stock.
p.s. Please keep in mind my target size. The results may be VERY different if I had changed the dimensions. Unfortunately I don't have raw data for adult human-sized targets.
