A Milsig converted Phenom would fit your bill. If you didn't consider quality.

I just became a dealer for Scarab Arms. Met the owner Rami over the weekend at a huge paintball scenario game in so cal (posted a pic of us on my twitter feed & FB). Talked today in length with him (well over one hr lol) about just about everything he is doing, swell guy. The rounds are still in development. Some very interesting things about the outer shell he tells me. It will have a spiral design for easier breakage. Different material than the Tiberius FS. The fill is where they are at right now. They are testing different types of fills. The rounds will be a continuous shape. In other words they will not have the empty back that the FS rounds have. The spiral is suppose to be different as well. No exact release date but as stated on their FB page it will be the first part of next year. Their markers and magazines look very nice and are shipping out Nov 1. As I find out more I will spill the beans...

If they're designing the round to have a larger payload, there's a good chance they will be above ASTM (3.5g, and FS rounds currently weigh 3.11g). Not FN303 heavy of course but, maybe enough for goggle manufacturers and, insurance folks, and possibly recipients (targets) to be concerned.

Also, one of the reasons why the FS round flies so well is that the center of gravity is near the center of pressure (the tip). With a larger payload- the center of gravity will shift rearward which, tends to destabilize projectiles. This is why FN303 rounds have a denser (bismuth powder) nose section- to bring the center of gravity up front..

I wonder what material they are using. Bio/photo-degradable? More or less fragile than the FS rounds?

I messaged them over facebook weeks ago with the following questions and they never responded:
Who is making these?
Who owns the Intellectual Property?
What material are they made from?
This tells me that they are likely not the only ones behind making these which, leads me to believe they are dealing with Perfect Circle and in these types of dealings both companies are probably under a non-disclosure agreement.

If they manage to give us a larger (by volume) payload, I'm all for it. If they bring a round with a heavier weight, I'm 100% okay if it's at or under ASTM. If it's heavier, then I would like to see a lot of public testing in the hopes to show that the shell was more fragile and, less able to transfer energy into the target.

yup Rami is a good guy I have known him for several years, I am just waiting on my shippment, one thing he may not have mentioned is the barrel will be specific to the 2nd/3rd gen scarab rounds (cant really call them FS as they will have structal changes to them) that has been the delay in shipping, and a few tweeks on the marker.
Really looking forward to having a go with this marker
