Here is the paragraph about velocity of Airsoft pellets. This is from their website.
FPS: FPS stands for Feet Per Second. It is the velocity, a measurement of speed, which the gun can fire a BB. The higher the FPS the faster the airsoft gun or rifle shoots. This can be affected by the types of BB's used.
The pellet velocity of automatic electric guns is determined in large part by the tension of their main spring and so there tends to be a stratification of values. The most common airsoft velocity limits are between 300 to 400 ft/s (90 to 120 m/s) for AEG's and 400 to 500 ft/s (120 to 150 m/s) for single shot guns (sniper rifles). Here are some common levels of airsoft gun pellet velocity.
So, the fastest pellet likely would be moving at about 500fps. This equals 10.56 seconds to travel the 5280 feet in a mile. 200 miles an hour breaks down to 720000fps, if my math is correct. I love hyperbolic news headlines!
Having said that.....it's STILL a hell of a trick!
