Do FSR's exhibit any unusual sensitivity to velocity?

Is there any difference, other than range, between shooting FSR's at ~250fps vs. 300fps?

In consideration of a FS marker, I would only use it at scenarios. Most that I attend will let pumps shoot 300 fps while everyone else shoots 280 fps. My first thought was to wonder if the extra 20 fps would be worth focusing on a pump. However, I started to wonder if FSRs had any noticeable preference in velocity when it comes to overall accuracy or launch breaking.

I'd very much doubt it. Since they're not subject to the same kind of vortex shedding that a spherical round is, the only difference should be maximum range.

The biggest impact will be range. However a slower speed is more susceptible to crosswinds in that a longer time of flight = more time for the wind to deflect it off target.

Spin from a rifled barrel should scale with velocity. That's the only difference I can think of.
