I dont think paintballs would work in a vortex block, the forces applied would just make them pop in the vortex block. try it, it would be amazing to have a paintball strafer!

The BBs don't have very much stress applied to them; as long as the block was made out of Bondo or something not too hard, I doubt they would pop, unless it was crap paint. Marbles would work, you'd just need a MONSTER compressor and a huge trigger, like a 1/2" or 3/4" ball valve.
