Anyone still make good large bore paint?

So, in our age of ever-shrinking small bore paint, does any manufacturer still specifically make a quality large bore paint? I mean a true purpose made large bore paintball, not regular paint left out in the sun for a few hours. I've got a bunch of .689-.691 twist-lock mag barrels that cant be freak bored that I'd like to be able to find a better paint/bore match for.

The biggest I've shot in the past 2 years or so was Valken Redemption Pro which was right around .686. Just shot some Redemption Platinum last weekend that was .684ish. Most of what I've seen out of DXS/RPS has been in the .680 range or smaller.

I've never had an issue with Valken stuff. RPS or DXS I'm surprised when it's NOT dimpled, slicked with oil. Valken paint I don't think I've ever gotten a box that had a dimple or oil in it, ever. The Pro shot freaking amazing if I could shoot that at every game I'd be in paintball nirvana.

I've had really good luck with Nelson paint locally and that has run .684-.686 most of the time

Nelson Anarchy largest I've shot. Doesnt' roll out of older stock phantom barrels. Next would be Valken Crusade or Redemption. Sadly all three of these are no longer sold in Hawaii....

I hear that from people not from the NE. Whatever reason it's .686ish here but smaller in other places.
