I do believe the rifles are tuned to shoot the "standard" weight pellet at the velocity that will give good performance while also giving high shot count.

One of the questions in the original post talked about better shape improving velocity.  Well, not out of the muzzle. 

If I shoot a 21gr diabolo pellet and shoot a 21gr slug immediately after on the same tune, they both leave the muzzle at the same velocity.  

However, the pellet will lose speed down range at a faster rate due to it's lower BC.
