It's been my experience that as long as you can find paintballs with ODs around .687 (like a First Strike) they will shoot within 5fps of the first strike rounds.

If not, just chrono for whichever round hits the higher velocity. You're still going to get a massive range/accuracy gain with the first strikes.

Also, don't want to open up a completely different can of worms with the overboring/underboring thing, but seeing as how we're talking about an open-bolt electro here you should be fine either way, and if anything, overboring with functional detents should be just fine.

Assuming that this thing comes with the equivalent of a .687 or .689 DYE Ultralite, I wouldn't consider it a "poor condition" for either type of ammo.
