Dmg/sec are equal and on the low damage weapon, the amp makes a bigger contribution to the overall damage and that increases overall efficiency. Some amps aren't efficient, so the opposite would be true with those.

But I do agree that on big mean mobs, the faster dmg/sec gun & amp is usually the better choice to reduce armor decay.
Sorry, it is probably my bad English. I meant that, in my experience, hunting the same mob (Atrox guardian for example), with the two weapons mentioned in my previous post, using the same amp, I pay less decay repairing the amp when I use the Arctic compared to the K400. I totally agree with your post.
