    All high power rifles has a minimum of about 770 m/s, and up to about 900-1000 m/s. So if 450 m/s should be with a subsonic round, that would be wrong too. A subsonic round is not subsonic before the velocity is below ca. 325 m/s.

    But its just a game 🙂 Its just that i’m in to this stoff, so when I see something wrong, I just say it(Wright it ) 🙂
