Review: I picked a case of 500 of these to pass the time before a game the next day. After cleaning and oiling my Alpha Black, I took it to a range and shot off about 200 of these. My experience was absolutely terrible.

First opening the box, you'll notice they're overcoated with a disgustingly large amount of oil. Nevertheless, I shot about 20-30 before a break, and about 4-6 more before it chopped. This happened to me about 3 times over the course of 20 minutes. Examining the balls themselves, my batch were thoroughly inconsistent when it came to shell strength. Literally one paintball differed from the next, as in one I couldn't crush with my fingers, and the second came apart like butter. Very inconsistent.

Shootingwise, very few came within what I would consider an accurate spread (3-4 inch square.) At 25 feet, They stayed within 6 inches, and at 45 feet, about 11.3 to 12.1 inches. I still haven't stopped laughing at the results. I should have used my $10 at McDonalds. Windspeed was near 0 MPH, and every third ball followed a parabolic path like it was trying to boomerang back at me. The most laughable experience of my life.

Do yourself a favor, if you're going to skimp on paint and purchase ammo at wal-mart, splurge and get your hands on some recon paint. The only thing good that came out of this were the calories I burned cleaning my marker and yelling.
Conclusion: Spend the extra $5 and get recon paint or better. The savings are massively outweighed by the poor quality of this paint.
3 out of 10
