There is probably a difference on shooting slugs, and pellets. As I understand it slugs need fast spin to be stable. All depending on the barrel, they might be unstable at "pellet" speeds. I agree with you about going to as fast as possible with pellets is not always beneficial, as you sacrifice allot in other areas. The gun might be loud, it use allot of air, might have to clean more often. And it might in some cases not be as accurate (flyers). I personally would probably use the velocity which gave me the most accuracy, but if I could find the same accuracy at some lower speed, and have the other benefits, I would probably choose the litle slower.
