I will do my best to explain what I know on this topic. Each pellet is different and there is a mathematical equation that every high level shooter does to maximize thier efficiency. So a pellet shot from lower fps but with a better bc than one shot at faster fps can be a flatter shooter. I believe these guys are picking the best pellet they can find for thier gun generaly they look for the heaviest pellet thier gun likes and pump up the velocity to as fast as the pellets bc can handle as well as matching barrel twist rates and harmonics. If thier guns can stabalize a pellet and the speed doesn't make the pellet unstable than every fps faster helps. For average shooters I would agree with your idea here but high level shooters often push the limits of thier equipment to gain really small advantages over the competition. Its the same as racing bicycles. In general cadence and fitness will get the win but in high level those guys will spend thousands of dollars to lose an ounce or two. Its not practical for most but can be the difference between silver or gold. Just my 2 cents.
