.50 Caliber Paintball sign now

By signing this, you agree that we should not make the switch to .50 caliber paint from the traditional .68 caliber paint.




*Will have to convert EVERY hopper, gun, and barrel

*Cheaper, but people will shoot more because they wont try to conserve paint (thus buying MORE paint)

*Will be harder for the paint to break (less surface area)

*More power behind the ball to go farther, meaning more air consumption

*Harder to see

*All paint making machines will have to be converted/remade/bought

*Harder to hit

*Manufacturers will have to remake and redesign parts for guns

*Way easier to wipe

*Hurts less, meaning it will be harder to feel

*Will it be harder to play woodsball with the smaller paint flying threw sticks and leaves?




Volume (not in oz, sorry)
.68=0.16464in (squared)
.50=0.06545in (squared)

That's .09919in (squared) of less paint in the .50.
When you get hit, paint is left on you, flung off by impact, and flung off with the shell. Also, the math doesn't count the shell. This seems like a very small amount, but it'll make a difference.

Will the hit be easy enough for refs to see?
Will the hit be big enough to count most of the time?
What if you're playing in dark condition's where it's hard to see all together?

Yeah, it may shoot straighter. That's about it.



I, for one, will stock up on as much .68 paint I can get my hands on if we are making the switch. I will never shoot .50 out of my equipment, no questions asked. I will not buy a new gun that shoots .50, even if it's better than my current gun.

Maybe I'm the only one, but I hope there are more like me out there.

Please, pass this around on the forums, tell your friends, and e-mail companies.
