I dont know the make of mine because my step cousin supplies me with "noname" paintballs from the factory, because he's sponsored :D
I'll ask him what he uses in tournament etc though

Yeah, they are. They about 1/2 if not 1/3 of the price of tournament balls!

.50 cal? Usually paintballs are .68 as far as I know, so they probably cheap ones for "play guns". I'm not sure if you should rather just spend the extra few bucks and buy better quality, ey.

I think that .50 cal paintballs will work in a 13 mm barrel, but I'm not sure.

you can use any ruler with inch and and a little fraction decimal calculation, the .30, .22, .50 caliber system is the diameter of the projectile in decimal form .50

examples: .50cal=12.5mm=1/2in
.22cal=5.56mm= almost 1/4

you'll have to calculate that yourself if I had my ti-83 calculator with the unit converter program I'd do it but I don't so it a real task, I'm here to share my knowledge not to doo stuff for you

i read somewhere that pneumatic can have up to a infinitive chamber volume..is this true?

theoretically but there's only so much pvc in the world and it's only so big before its considered ridiculous

.68 is 12.272mm. Bit off-topic, does anyone know if anyone makes glow-in-the-dark paintballs? I mean glow-in-the-dark paint and everything, not just the shell.

cant you use a hypodermic needle to fill paintballs with whatever you choose? or am i wrong. i saw it in a movie where they filled them with liquid nitrogen and shot them at time traveling people to bring them back to where they started.

Could you? Yes. Am I really going to drain and refill hundreds of paintballs? Heck no. I want premade, I'm a DIY kinda guy, but that's a little extreme.

i would fill some pb's with india ink or something and have some fun making things black..........

or various other uses, such as pelting a wasps nest with 50 paintballs filled with wasp poison.

i see uses for it. and it shouldnt take that long. just poke, suck, spit, poke, spit, remove. do that 2000+ times. just watch TV while you do it.

but then, i am the guy who made over 2000 homemade nerf darts in one day.....
