After that i just stopped trying and basically gave up on the hopes of finding paint larger than .682 ever again. Which sucks b/c my favorite barrels are 88-89, then there are my pistols which are seeing less and less use as paint sizes get smaller and smaller.
The problem is that paint is made out of organic compounds that are moisture and temperature sensitive, there really can't be a guarantee that paint shipped at .688 is going to stay that way for very long. .008 is after all barely bigger than two human hair widths.
