so I have a question that actually has been nagging me.
I have 2 lapco barells a .684 and a .687 bigshot.
I have noticed even on tourny level paint the .684 will brak 1 shot in 20.
Kinda of irritating.
Is this just because of the tight bore.
I have a lot better luck with the 87 and my stock barrell

just really asking whats the point of the tighter barell if it breaks?

I normally overbore because I hate barrel brakes way more than inconsistent velocity or corkscrews. Most guys try to underbore just .001 or .002 and that gets the benefits without brakes supposedly. Benefits if you do it right are more consistent velocity and better efficiency.

If im not shooting a pump i dont even worry about underboring as long as the bore isnt huge

I would be willing to bet it's the paint your shooting. What marker are you shooting?

Is the paint you are shooting constant in size?
Have you tried a harder shell paint?

Not all markers can shoot Tournament grade. Some markers are harder on paint.

I was shooting nelson anarchy in a hurricane which had the 84 barrell

when I shot the same paint thru the x7 and 2 bags of it no breaks

Get a .84 brass barrel... no more breaks

Tippmans are hard on paint. Especially mag fed tippmans. Try Valken Graffiti or a mid grade paint something with a harder shell. (Or over bore) You sure they are barrel breaks or is it clipping paint. Could be a mag issue.

Is your Detent stuck missing or damaged? I would check that as well.

i swapped barells so ill try with the larger bore. I had the same issue when i put that barrell on my x7

depends a lot on where u live and what paint your field offers, if you play a FPO place.
My fav barrel for woods...where i the 684 lapco bigshot on my cronus, x5 or phenom. My outdoor Tipx uses a 689. Now...indoors...i shoot a 682! especially with an autococker. i rarely break paint.

I do carry and sometimes use, on hot days where my paint is kept out, a 685 or 87...but at those numbers, the paint will just roll out of any autococker i use, so then it's strictly tippmanns!

I find, now this is just me...a tighter bore (that actually fits the paint) yields higher fps. shooting paint out of a 684 got me higher fps' than a 689 or 90 for the same velocity setting on the marker.

but if ur breaking paint, then it serves no purpose at all.
