Unfortunately, this is very unlikely to happen (in the U.S. anyways, not sure about Canada, while I believe Japan and the EU specify energy). A lot of folks hoped that .50 rounds would be able to be fired at a higher velocity but, they weren't / aren't. The way I understand it, here in the U.S. all of the safety recommendations (by ASTM) and insurance requirements are written around FPS and not Joules/ftLbs/etc.

Unfortunately all of you have played the one "speedball" game of paintball for so long you can't conceive of other ways to do this and hence any new ideas seem stupid.
