I want to say .682-4 or so is about the min but I'm not close to 100%.

You could try pm'ing CCMachinst too, what with him working on the sniper gun he may know.

It may not just be busting the round itself, but compressing the fin section down may reduce performance if it's permanently deformed. The polymer isn't as springy as paintball shell.
