First strike off brand test rounds?
 
Anyone see these before or try them? I have never even shot or even held a FS round, but if these are close, they would be great for testing! Here is the ebay link!

The link isn't working

I bought some Rap4 dummy Fs rounds and it is nice not wasting Fs rounds but I only see these as useful is your testing feeding on the rounds or other technical issues with your marker since they are a different diameter then a Fs round then using them for sighting in would be pointless since they have a different flight path

I don't like dummy rounds or reballs for the simple reason that in every sport there are *******s. I remember playing in my Colorado GoldRush days. The captain of the Regulators would freeze their balls. Some folks say frozen balls break in the gun, those folks never played at 6000 ft in the dead if winter.

If someone ever used these on me in a game I would be very close to going to Jail. The rap4 one is a hard solid plastic and I am not sure a mask lens would hold up

Big Game East #1, Coram NY.
Some Bozo was launching .68 caliber balls of sawdust and glue. They hurt like mad, and left splinters of wood in your BDU's where they hit you.

So much for "sportsmanship".

How closely to the ballistics of these rounds match FSRs?

I can see them being useful for practice, but not for testing, since the fragility of actual FSRs is one of the biggest factors in working out how to load and shoot them.

07 Transformers game in Ma. there were frozen PB's shot. I got hit and then the ref trying to walk me out was hit. He ran after someone like a crazy person. But yes you can freeze paint balls. Been hit by one. Black bruise that lasted almost a month! Feyd............

Aside from the entire, don't use these in a real game scenario, I was more curious how they stacked up against real FSR for the sole purpose of tuning. Are they the correct size, weight, etc?

Jjron99 snaged some, rap4 makes them. They are different in size, weight, and fin angle.
