Paintballs:
anything!
Strengths: 1) Very accurate. The most accurate I've ever shot.
2) Very efficient. Only exit porting, no "spiral" ports. Spiral porting is a joke, it does nothing but waste air. If you don't believe me, read up on the physics involved and run some simulations... I did.
2) It has a very small bore, so you can shoot any size/quality paint accurately. This used to be very important to me because I shot mostly very old (stale) paint. Since the bore is small, the friction on the paintball will always be evenly distributed, even if the ball is irregular!
3) Cheap.
Weaknesses: 1) It's extremely heavy. Much more so than you would think from pictures or even similar barrels. Weighs as much as the rest of my gun (no air system). I call it the "autobrick".
Conclusion: Think hard about buying the aluminum version... I hear it's just as accurate.
Rating:
9 out of 10

I just wanted to add that the barrel I have is an older version with no milling in the side. The newer ones have more milling which should reduce the weight (like in the image above).
