Barrels:
I used a .691 Freak insert. They wouldn't fit through a .689 insert, so I guess a medium to large bore barrel.
Strengths: Nice fill, no dimples or flats, seemed to fly straight.
Weaknesses: Lots of bounces. Didn't break unless they hit something hard: mask, gun, hopper.
Review: I went through a case of these last Saturday. They shot well. I only had one break in my marker and that was probably because I short stroked it. However, the shells are tough and do not break easily. The only break I had on me from the Red Label balls was a hit on my hopper. Body hits (legs, arms, shoulders) were all bounces, including a few deflections off the side of my mask.

There were several instances where I was laying paint on an opposing player and they did not go out. I suspect I hit them, but the Red Labels balls bounced off them like they were bouncing off me.

The only balls that broke on my body were the Proballs that players were shooting.

I spent a little extra to shoot the Red Label over the Black Label and was disappointed. Next time I plan to buy the Proballs and shoot less.

I emailed my local field requesting that they look into some different field paint because of the problems I had with the Red Label.
Conclusion: I don't recommend these unless Kingman changes the shells so they break easier,
