Barrels:
Well, the rounds I used were small, so I'd say use around a .684" bore of some kind, maybe a tad smaller. Results may vary :)
Strengths: Very consistant shell
Accurate
Breaks on even minor targets
Affordable
Doesn't stain
Weaknesses: Fill? (see below)
Review: Ok not sure if this was designed into these rounds or if the fill is just too thin. But I shot two bags up last saturday while adjusting some things. And one thing I was pleased to see is that these do NOT stain at all!! I'd hit a tree with a hopper ful and by the time I was done, the paint had started to fade away. It took 5-10 minutes for this to happen and you could only see the shell spot where the ball hit, and a dark area that simply looked like someone hosed the bark with water. For those of us who can't have paint that stains, this was fantastic.

When the ball first breaks, the fill is like anyone would expect, thick and bright and covers VERY well. But then it simply fades away......
Conclusion: I'll try some of these again soon, hopefully I can snag a full case to see how they shoot. When I was fiddling with things my accuracy was all over the place. Later I found out that some lube had coated the bore of my barrel so I was shooting total spitballs!
