Review: This paint is actually pretty good for the price. I thought it was going to suck because of it being made by BE, but they actually work pretty well for Wal-Mart bargain balls ($30-ish).
They're pretty firm, so they won't turn to soup in your hopper, but they're still brittle enough to break on target most of the time.
They leave a big bright orange splat when they break, so you know when you hit someone or if you got hit yourself. I just wish that they came in more colors so we could figure out who got who from the color of the hit.
These measured at about a .684 for me, so I underbored to .682 with my Kaners and I was able to hit a rock about the size of my fist from almost 10 yards away with my first shot! Not entirely sure if it was because of this specific kind of paint but I'll still mention it in this review.

Now onto the not-so-good, This paint smells BAD. Be sure to breathe through your mouth when loading with these guys. Also, they don't seem to age all that well. When I first bought these, I could throw them on the tile floor in my house and they would break on contact. About a month later, I did the same test with the other bag in the case and the paint bounced off the tile, bounced off the ceiling and into my hand without so much as a dimple. I just threw them into the fridge for a few hours and they seemed to work fine then. I don't think I stored them wrong (room temp in a closet, minimum humdity, bag was unopened), so I don't think this was due to human error). Also, after a day of play, I took off my BDUs and threw them in the wash. When I pulled them out, the spots where I got hit were now a orange powdery splotch, I threw it in the wash again but it remained the same.
Conclusion: Overall, this is a good Rec and woodsball paint. For the price and availability, you can't go wrong
