My personal point of view is that it is better to have less power and know that you will always be under the limit
Agreed, Generaly run my pre charge rifles at the 775/780fps mark giving a ft/lb of 11.3, generally a nice place to sit. Also gives the protarget 80 usefull shots to a charge which I find is plenty for GPs.
