Review: First, I read the above reviews and most said it was a small bore paint. The two cases that my buddy and I had, the balls were consistantly getting stuck in my .692" Powerlyte insert (which I measured to be sure of the accuracy). My buddy has a Tippmann 98c with a J&J Ceramic barrel. He shot one hoppers worth of these balls and gave up. Too many barrel breaks (not chops). Since I have a barrel kit, I was able to roughly size the balls to my bore (.692") but was still getting quite a few barrel breaks. After a break in play, I re-sized the paint....again...out of five balls, one or two would get stuck and had to be blown out with quite a bit of force. Needless to say, I won't be wasting money on this paint again. I think the Wal-Mart Scorch is better than this stuff.

BTW, the fill is not very thick and can easily be wiped and made to look like an old hit.
Conclusion: So, in my experience with this paint, I would recommend against it.

Rating:
3 out of 10

Dispute:
I think you need to use a bigger bore size then maybe you will not have as many barrel breaks as you did.

I have used around 2 cases of this paint and have never had one break. But I was also using a .693 bore size with my REDZ barrel kit. So maybe if you had used a bigger bore size then you would of had a better experience with this paint.

And the shell is made to be brittle, so that should not be a downside.

honestly, ive used about 3 and a half cases and 2 of the cases i would give a 1, and the other case a 10. i think that batches arent very consistent, because all of the cases were very new, and, i shot all of this paint through the same gun.
