My Hurc is 0.690 and it works great with most paint. I don't think you'll have too much to worry about, just be cognizant of paint sizes, and choose those that work best.

I mostly shoot a .690. It shoots just about anything.

In just the past few years paint has been getting smaller, Although, I think makers have heard the complaints and are making the balls a little bigger now. Smaller balls feed better.

As the cost of materials go up, the manufactures are less likely to throw the bad/small stuff out. Some of them would mix all of the bad stuff together, recap it and sell it as a cheaper ball. We don't see too much of that these days.

Humidity and storage plays a big part of the ball size. Sugar is used to to make the ball brittle. So yes, you can make the ball bigger by letting it soak up moister, but you will also get more bounces.

Really Cold DRY winter days and a small bore can be really hard on brittle paint.
I'll use a 690 and no wedigts for days like that with crappy paint.

A ball dropped at shoulder height should bounce off concrete 90% of the time.

If your stuck with small field paint, get the 685. If you have a choice in brand get the .690.


.685 and .690 are standard price. Any other size bigger than .685 and .690 requires a $40 hone charge.

I tend to use my Phantom/Cocker thread PPS .685 unwedgited barrels most of the time. Very seldom do I resort to inserts. I now have a Pico shot that can handle the smallest of all paints, like Ramp and field paint.

THE-SHOOTIST Anyone chubbin' like me for this?
mailmanmike Since Monday! That's more than 4 hours though, so according to those cialis ads I should see my doctor.
tlane77 I think for a non-chemical chubby it's 6 hours before its time to see a doctor. So you should be good for another couple hours.
splattttttt I wasn't goin to google "chubbin" because I assumed it had to do with fat. The lard type, not the fun stuff. But what ever feelings Jeff's experiencing, then they must be of the fun like stuff...

Uhhhg, my .685 on my pyre failed me for the first time this week.
Was way to small for the paint at the field, I kept getting breaks and had one ball get stuck in the barrel somehow.
Did a test in the staging area and I couldn't blow a ball through the barrel.

What about a unisizer thing like it ATS markers? That wouldnt be to terribly hard to do.

I have a few possible ways to work with this I'm currently working the kinks out of myself, like a breech loading insert kit and a bored out bolt section to slip the insert in from the rear, reinsert a (Larger OD) bolt system and off you go.

The unisizer on ATS barrels is basically functioning the EXACT same way that wedgits on PPS barrels do.

As it has always been said, .688 or even .69 with wedgits is a much more universal bore than .685 with or without wedgits.

Id get a .688 or .687 with wedgits. Custom ordered (they make .685 barrels bigger)

Sounds like the paint failed 'ya! Hope your next outing is better.

I've been using a .685 with wedgits on my blazer with reballs and it works great, I've also used some paint with it and no complaints. I also just had a friend at school turn down an older dye stainless one peice for emergency large paint use.

Good update CJ. I haven't played in quite some time now, but I'm anxious to get out to the field! It's troubling that paint is getting even SMALLER now though...
