I agree, but I would add that the interesting thing about using First Strike rounds in speedball is that the very different travel characteristics of the rounds often catch experienced players off-guard.

A seasoned player angling from the backfield knows he can expect to have certain amount of time from the time he hears his distant opponents take a shot at him and the time when he must duck behind cover to avoid the incoming round.
FS rounds, which maintain the velocity better over their flight path, do not abide by these expectations.
