fsr bounce!!

I have spent allot of time shooting fsr's at distance.This weekend I toned it down set up my red dot at 30 yds and played at rnd ball distances.In one game(the only one) I shot 3 players 16 rnds and 4 bounces.The bounces just irritate me you could hear the loud crack of the fsr bouncing off a lose part of pants or shirts.I weigh and size all of my fsr occasionally sanding the tips.I could have been more precise but generally center mass.Anyone else expirencing these bounces??Tips ?tricks??
On another note the accuracy at pb distances is incredible nice that you could shoot long if needed.I hit a can at 90 ft 7 out of 8 shoots like shooting a firearm.

I've observed some bounces, but our field limit is 250fps and it's cold in Canada just now so people are padded up.

I was talking to the dude in Canada that mentioned a 250 field limit.

As for your bounces...did you notice if the pants/shirts you were hitting had extra padding? Maybe it was just baggy enough to absorb the impact?

This is good info and hopefully if anyone else is noticing this they will post up. Hope its not a defect in the FSR's.

I seem to have always noticed this problem. That's why I tend to double tap now. The only kinda nice thing about this is that you can shoot into a sheet and they bounce also when practicing and sighting in so you don't waste a bunch of rounds, although I'd rather they always break on target, I hate giving away my position, scoring a direct hit, and then getting lit up after it bounces.....

this is why you have a spotter. they carry a marker that uses normal paint and can provide cover fire for getting out of these situations.

Personally this is why ive often said the most over looked unfair advantage in our sport is all the damn bounce padding. Its not just fsr either. I use a pump all the time and nothing aggravates me more than one balling a charging speedballer in the head and watching it bounce. You may as well be using a god mode hack
