GI Sportz 5 Star Imperial Excellent paint to play with. Brittle shell breaks on target. Bounces became a thing of the past when I started using this paint. The fill is extremely hard to wipe also

This is some of the best paint out there. No dimples so it shoots straight as an arrow. Size is consistent so very consistent over the chrono. It breaks every time. The shell is very fragile but doesn't break in the gun. Great all around paint worth the little extra.
