For those too lazy to use a calculator online, or if you're out at a game, I made up a chart for limits regarding muzzle velocity of our airsoft guns.
It might be a good idea to print or otherwise copy this information and keep it with your chronograph (if you have one). It may make chrono testing at events run more smoothly at events if the bolt action guys (or anyone not using .2g bbs, for that matter) to not have to switch out bbs.
For the sake of completion I listed weights that may not be used or recommended (like .12g bb weights).
8mms come in .27, .34 (most common), and .35 bio. What are your rulings on 8mm shotties (like the new US version M500)? Mine chronos at 330fps with .34g bbs, and it shoots 3 at a time. Now, it's not an AEG, but it's not a bolt action sniper rifle, either.
That's a pretty sweet calculator, I didn't even bother using K=(1/2)mv^2.
You know this is extremely close to the spring energy equation? It's U=(1/2)kx^2, where u=potential energy in J, k=the spring constant in J/meter, and x= the displacement in meters.
