Interchangeable barrels for shaped & roundball

Hi folks,

New to magfed, currently working on getting a setup ready for the spring season. I plan on mostly using FSR for magfed events, but would like the option to use roundball for outlaw. Are there any barrels that work well for both? I'll be using this on a MCS Bolt pump so please keep bore size for rollouts in mind.

Thanks,
Jonny

I run an Hammerhead Bangstixx with a .683 and .686 fin.
Works great for either FSR or ball.

It likes to be tuned with ball, somewhere around 274 fps it shoots magic, otherwise I get a few wild shots on occasion.

FSR is lazers at field limits. My field limit is 280.

I've look at the hammerhead barrels, are fins essentially the same thing as backs?

My only concern is that .683 is a bit big for the roundball that I shoot. It tends to bore out around .679-.681. I suppose I could always mitigate it with tape or something.

Fins are backs, yes, you can get smaller fins (backs).

Does rifling actually work with FSR?

Better than it does with round balls.

Yes. On my 16 hammerhead there is a 1/4 spiral. The FSR from my own experiments (very basic) does in fact rotate that full 1/4.

Testing at 75 yards I can hit a 2x2ft target consistently versus my smoothbore.
The spread is much tighter.

With that said a good smoothbore still works very well since the fins on FSR cause it to spiral naturally. I'd say anything at 50 yards you'd have no trouble hitting a player sized target.

The furthest I hit a player in a game with FSR was 96 yards, right in the thigh.
