Rifling is overrated. There have been lots of posts as to why it can't work. The primary one is that the inside paint does not rotate at the same speed as the outer shell. Also, paintballs are not round so the rotational trajectory is not predictable.
Regarding the smaller ball (u said 50cal?) the surface area is reduced by ~45%. So, it appears it could be shot faster than the 68cal ones. But by how much? And who's going to change?
i was talking about the bore length (insert/full bore) no the barrel length haha
you seen the maxtac barrel right? its not that stander rifling. stander rifling just has a line marked in the barrel as the maxtac come's out.

All my Tippmann A5's that I've tuned will shoot +/-3fps.

Video proof.
