Evike sucks, I doubt it's UPS's fault
I'm no scientist, but I really like my Edgi 6.01mm barrel. FYI, you can tell them what length and bore size you want, so you can get a 6.02 if you want. They have AMAZING CS, so if something goes wrong, Ben at Edgi is glad to help. IDK what my groupings are, but with an E1 H nub, 6.01mm 363mm Edgi barrel, teflon taped JG bucking (SRC bucking ripped, I lost my Systema. Another Systema is OTW), and TSD .25 bbs, I can hit a tree about 4 inches wide almost every time from about 100 feet. (the hop up unit isn't very good on my SRC)
According to some people who own Prometheus and PDI barrels, the PDI 6.05 has better range than a Promy, but the Promy is more accurate than the 6.05. It's hard to determine which bore is "better" because PDI is probably the best barrel brand.
The hypothesis goes like this
The tighter the bore, the more accurate the gun is and sometimes the biggest fps boost. Apparently, barrels with bore sizes larger than that of a 6.01mm have better range. I only have experience with stock JG/SRC barrels and my Edgi. I did not see a range decrease what so ever.
Probably not much help, but I really like my Edgi and I highly recommend it. According to Ben at Edgi, the 6.01mm yields a higher fps increase and is more accurate than their 6.03mm. I assume the 6.01mm gets better range as well?
Go for an Edgi 6.01mm if you want a great performing barrel, but don't want to spend the cash on a PDI. I've never shot a Prometheus or a PDI, but if my info is correct, PDI is the best.
TCF prefers Edgi over PDI for sniper barrels and Allizard likes his Edgi barrel more than the Prometheus.
