Unread postAuthor: dragon finder » Fri Mar 17, 2006 3:22 pm

Douse any one know how much weight, stress, or pressure needs to be applyed to paintballs so they splater. I want to know the minimal weight needed. thanks.
p.s. I know that some paintballs brake easyer than others so a guess is suffise. Thanks again.

Well, i had a blow gun 40 caliber, 54" long, and i was shooting at squirls eating from the bird feeders outside my liveing room window, about 50 feet. From time of the shot to impact was aproxx. .5 to 1 second. Half of them that hit the apple tree broke. Blow gun advertized 175 to 215 feet per second. Do the math weight/distance/speed, with a avage succes rate of half???

I should learn some more math, my knowlage is limited to machinic work, basicly.

What? haylo_stealer...

I'v squeezed a paintball to failure before. So, I had by suspicions that your numbers where incorrect. Thus, I set up this testing procedure:

A throughly abused (several months old, inproper storage) "cheap paintball" (of some unknown brand) was placed between 2 plates. Force on plates was increased in increments of 1 lb.

Said paintball survived untill 11 lbs, at which the plates contacted each other, making further increases in force inpossible.

Well I had several month old inproprly stored cheap paintballs and the paint in all if them were a rubbery paist from most likly dehydration so fresh paintballs will most likely brake easier.
