    This is just out of curiosity but personally i think its a good topic more so for us MF rather than the "Spray and Pray" guys

    I have a T15 .68 (obviously) and a APS X50 .43 side arm.

    From what i have seen and i am new to MF the .43 doesnt seem to deviate as much as a .68 when using round ball the same as .177 travels further than a .22 air rifle pellet and uses less air (always a good thing)

    If markers was made in .68 and .43 which would you chose for accuracy?

    Also i would love to see FS in .43 for pistol and sniper use.

    What do you guys and gals think?

    Paintballs do not work like air rifles. A smaller projectile actually travels less distance at the same muzzle velocity. The reason a 177 goes further than a 22 is due to a higher muzzle velocity on the smaller projectile. To get anywhere near 68 ranges with 43 you would need to fire well in excess of 350fps.

    Also 68 breaks far more reliably at range on soft targets such as players the either 50 or 43 and leaves a significantly larger more visible mark. We aren't airsofters and most don't walk for bounces.

    There is a reason 50cal is only prevalent on rental sites in the UK. Smaller projectiles have no benefit to the walkon or event player.
