Shaking in their boots? Because of an unproven product from a company with a reputation for questionable-at-best quality?

So what is the shelflife of first strike? That many would be a several year supply for me.

250 might last me a day of play if I was careful. Or if I was at K69@EMR.... most of the day because I ran missions lol.

600 for that price is cheaper than what they gave to sponsored teams.

They actually announced it? FINALLY!!!! Great news.

I just want the damn things to not crush or break my mags and at the very least be reasonably consistent compared to paint. Hopefully nothing weird happens like they get turned down by fields for having foam bands or something (they need to be bio-degradeable).

(Having a breach break in a T15 is a nightmare to clean out on the field.)

Last I heard from a MCS rep. (Think I PMd, but have no proof and this was a while ago)
Their shaped rounds are a thing that have come to the LEO/Military training market a while ago. But their cost, do to the amount of times humans had to be involved, was so high, they didnt bother with the paintball market. It just wasnt a priority, and they wouldnt have been competitive pricing wise.


If they found a way to automate more of the process, and they actually come to our market. that would be great news.
But the 10c rounds Omar Macy promised us all them years ago (2014?) just isnt in the cards yet.

They wont be 10c. But around 15. The major hold up right now is commitmwnt to order quantity from what they say currently. Its a big commitment to order so many to get the price point correct. Well thats the word from there weekly videos.

If the MCS round is accurate to 75 yards consistently they will fly off the shelves.

There have only been a few times I've had the opportunity to actually shoot someone further than about 75 yards, without sitting outside an objective idling the day away.

Those 100 yard shots are amazing, but you gotta play the objective to earn those points!
