Section VII-A-09: Velocity Comparison Using 0.34 Gram 8mm BB's

Note that the charts characterize muzzle energy rather than muzzle velocity.  This was done for the sake of consistency.  For this section, the muzzle energy can be compared to the equivalent muzzle velocity if 0.20g BB's are used, as well as the actual muzzle velocities for the given BB weight.
