What FPS is considered to be high velocity,,,
And what FPS is considered to be normal (low) velocity?
I don't think there's a standard, but in the case of .22LR I think the cutoff would be somewhere around the speed of sound (~1100 fps), probably measured with a rifle length barrel. Some "high velocity" ammo is still probably subsonic when shot from a snubbie.
