I understand what he is saying, Im saying that the distance doesn't matter. Lenses are rated to 300 FPS. If a ball starts less than 300 FPS, than it can only slow down. and therefore never exceeds ASTM standards. Distance is irrelevant to how fast the paintball is traveling when speaking about impact points. 285=285, or 240=240, regardless if the ball took 3 or 30 yards to get there, as long as its under 300 FPS its well within parameters and the ASTM safety standard isn't degraded at all.
Thats what I don't understand.
