What bore paint are you shooting?
 
Yay! a nother stupid question! :rolleyes:
Long story short, I want to pick a lurker barrel. Just wondering, for all you people with barrels for days, what bore would you pick? 684 or 679? I shoot graffiti, evil, and I'm might start to shoot bombz. It's going on a pump so it needs to be tight enough to stop roll outs but I don't want go crazy. I'm leaning towards a 679. Thanks for your help.
(this is in the west coast section because paint varies across the nation.)

When I used Evil all I ever used what .679 because it was generally pretty small. I've recently switched to Valken Redemption and Dye Competition Grade and both are in .684 neighborhood and I've been shooting them out of my .682 Kaner.

Last box of Evil I got was in the .679 range. The batch before that was more in the .687 range. I know.. doesn't help much... lol

shooting graffiti personally it normally sizes at a .682 and fires perfectly through my .678 lurker barrel. I don't really run anything else now on my pumps. I do own a barrel kit but it's been a long time since paint was sizing at larger than .682-683 around here.

My Dye CG was even bigger, believe it or not. I think you're good if you plan to underbore on .684ish, though.

I think every serious Pumper must have a selection of barrels with different bores or a good kit.
Even if you stick with one line of paint it will vary from batch to batch.
That's the secret to accuracy.
You have to match your paint to bore PERIOD!

Get a good kit Panda.
I have several options. First I use the LAPCO barrel sizers. They have a good bore spread to choose from and I just match them with any of my OG favorite barrels. You can buy each one indivudually from their website.
Next is my CCM kit.
Do not rely on just one fixed bore barrel!

Graphitti usually bores to .679 here in Utah. I run a CCM insert body T2. When I run anything else, I use a Techt iFit kit. As suggested, a proper bore kit is your real best option.

Shot half a case of graffiti here in SoCal over the weekend. My size ran about .684

Well I ordered the .679 cause I'm dumb and bad at waiting, I'll start on a barrel kit but I really don't have all the money needed for that. I'll tell you how it goes.

You can always piecemeal a Freak kit. Get a back and a front (or have SSC bore a barrel), pick up a .679, a .675, and a .684 and you'd be set for just about anything. Grab the rest as you go.
