The biggest paint (ie: bore size) you've found recently?

So my wife bought me (ie: she agreed to let me get it ) PBWeasel's Squal for Christmas! And the only thing that I'm not super stoked about is the bore; it's a .690 bore (w/ wedgits). I currently have a half a case of Valken Redemption that's boring at about a .685 in 50deg dry Colorado air, and a full case of Valken Graffitti that's boring at about .687 in the same air.

Has anyone else found anything in the .685 or bigger bore range, and if so what was it?

ADDITION 12/21/12: I just sorted a bag of Marbelizers tonight using my VKC/mOngo BAll Sizer and over 2/3rds were larger than .687, with slightly less than 1/3rd being larger than .689! The other 1/3rd fell between .684 and .687, and only 10 passed through the .684 but were larger than .682... overall I'm happy!

Anarchy.
Running a good .688.
Also: Try putting fresh orange peels in your paint bags. That little bit of moisture adds a thou ot two.

Congrats on Weasel's Squall purchase. I've been shot out by it a few times, it's a bitchen gun.

I have a .690 Superstocker with wedgets and don't have any roll-outs down to .682 or so.

Thanks man! I bought a case or Anarchy last year and it was boring around .682 in TN summer Hummidity; I'll consider getting another case in the future!

And thanks for the advice on the orange peel... it's worth a shot!

Sweet... you just confirmed both Graffiti and Anarchy sizes for me; helps me feel like I'm not going crazy. I was pleasently surprised when I sized the case of Graffiti I bought last month at around .687 as well

Since Valken came on the scene I've used my .685+ inserts. Before that I was shooting RPS and had to used my .670 insert.

I don't think you'll have any problems. my PG is I think a 690 ID and I have wedgits and the graffiti from Carnage that's right around a .682 is the smallest it'll shoot. i've actually had 1 rollout with it but with normal rec paint not an issue

I played at a field (in Flordia) using Empire Hotbox and had to use my .689 insert.
