0.20g airsoft BBs are VERY poor aerodynamically. If you get them very fast at all, they just lose that velocity in mere feet.
Just like an increase from 500 to 700 m/s with golfballs only increases the range from about 540m to 590m, the same thing happens with airsoft BBs, only worse. Big increases in velocity only make small increases in range.
Also, I'd reckon that with a sufficiently aerodynamic projectile, the HyGaC could put something a lot further than a mile. Get the projectile right, and fifty miles wouldn't completely surprise me.
