According to the calculations on Deep Blue the frequency of the Karmann vortices that are shed by a paintball in flight (at 300fps) is around 940Hz. I'm willing to bet that that frequency is a harmonic of the fundemental frequency of the ring at the end of the barrel. If you try adjusting your velocity 20 or 30 fps up or down from where it's at (not for actual play, just for experimental purposes) the frequency of the ball should change and you probably won't hear as loud a ping.
