Review: I went out to play this weekend, and my field has switched to field paint only. I bought the cheapest stuff they had, which was the shrapnel at about $30 a case. I bought 1000 (enough for a days play) and went on my merry way. I did a barrel test - the stuff was too small for my All American, but I figured I'd come out to shoot my 'cocker, and too small wasn't as big a problem as too big.

This stuff was chopping all over the place. I was primarily using my 'cocker, and maybe 1 out of 10 would break in the barrel. Once that happened, accuracy was all over the place, I would have paint hook, drop and spiral until I could get the squeegee out. I also had one break in my pod, ruining the pod.

I also had one chop, and it jammed the bolt in. A bit of muscle and a squeegee later and it was running okay, at least until the next break.

Another guy there was using a 98C with a cyclone, and he had a couple break in his cyclone. Cleaning that out did NOT look fun.
Conclusion: I would say spend the extra money on better paint. Sure it was cheap, and I could still play the day, but I would have rather bought slightly nicer paint and spent less time dealing with broken paint.
Rating:
5 out of 10
