When you get right to it this smacks of just fishing for an excuse for another gun that you want anyway but now you'll be able to say "Look honey, the guys on the PAINTBALL website agree with my choice for a new rifle! I TOLD you, didn't I?".

Well, I for one ain't getting sucked down THAT road. No way I want your missus mad at ME for supporting your sordid cheap trick.......

I had a "Paintball God" moment once.
Like Al Bundy's Polk High football moment I live on
for the slim chance of repeating that one time
miracle in some small way.........

At least that's one aspect.


Somehow I can't see much stopping power from an "acupuncture needle" that just zips right through a body and leaves them with a bit of a sting even if it'll result in their death a few minutes later after they are finished stabbing you 50 times or wearing out a pipe on your head while their puny brain slowly gets the message.
At a high enough muzzle velocity you don't need much expansion to transfer more than enough energy. My 7mm magnum has over 3000fps of velocity. Even on a poor shot I've never had to track a deer more than say 30 feet (and that one fell down a hill).

(those with weak stomachs stop here, others highlight below hidden text)
The last deer I shot was partially hidden in some tall grass, so the vital area was concealed. My shot unfortunately was a gut shot. The shot exited with minimum expansion (judging by the exit hole, silver dollar sized) but dragged about 15 feet of intestines out of the hole. The deer ran about 20 feet, collapsed, and rolled down a hill.

This is of course a moot point if over penetration is a concern.
