Matt dubber on youtube has some great videos on barrel harmonics, twist rates and calculating ballistic coefficient to match your rifle. I guess my point is your not wrong but neither are the guys pushing the limits. 

I do see your point, but an inch or two in "flatness" at 100 yards for target shooting makes zero difference in performance.  I looked at all the "Pros" shooting their high speed pellets at RMAC, then at the top "Sportsmen" shooting FX Bobcats at "normal" speed,, and the scoring differential was minimal. In fact, the top Sportsman shot better scores than all but the top couple of Pros if I remember correctly. I shot there, and I can tell you without a doubt, and almost everyone there would agree, that WIND reading (and a bit lof luck) was far and above the major factor in scoring…  With no wind, anyone can shoot very good scores at 100 yards.  ;)
