smallest diameter .68 cal paintball on market

I've seen a few sites with bore sizes of different rounds listed but they all seem to differ / conflict.

What is the smallest sized .68 cal paintball on the market today?

My local field had some Valken Fate last weekend that was dropping right through a .675 Freak insert every single time. I've NEVER seen paint that small before.
Overall I think you will find a lot a variance from batch to batch & in different environmental and regional conditions

I once tried to shoot paint that dropped through my reball insert. Last time I measured it, it was .670.

I made some custom inserts for some folks in France... They were having rollouts on .670 and .665 inserts. I had to make 2 .660 inserts... I will never make those again... Very very difficult to process through the equipment.

Holy cow! I'm wanting to test bore sizes in flatline barrels. Wondering if small bore gets better backspin tbsn large bore since small will minimize contact with side or bottom of barrel surfaces.

In theory, yes, the smaller paint will have less drag on the sides and bottom of the barrel, yielding more backspin.

I have seen Valken Infinity roll through a .670 insert lately.

How have I never encountered any of this paint? I rarely use anything other than .682 or .684.

In manufacturing, the circular size of a feature is usually expressed as the smallest theoretical perfect circle into which the imperfect form being measured would fit.

In other words, your dimpled *** .672 paint is a long shot aways from a perfect circle
