Freak inserts and brittleness of paint

I recently bought a few SS inserts in mindset of keeping about .005 at max between each insert to prevent any major barrel break issues. So I bought .675, .679, and .684 SS freak inserts.

Should I be good considering I play in at worst 40*c, or about 100*F down to about 0*c in my indoor field using marbs or at worst evil (in brittleness).

So should I be good for inserts if I'm using a pump with these inserts or buy some in between inserts like .682, and .677 as well?

Marbs are not by any means a brittle paint. The shell is pretty hard which tends to lead to consistenant bore sizes in each box. Your inserts you have currently should be good but I would reccommend a larger insert as the Marbs I was used to running were in the .687-.689 range but this was in SoCal.
