I'm definitely not trying to sell a large bore barrel, I personally dont make any money when someone buys a large bore barrel so I personally could care less what you shoot.
I know that I made it mandatory that to be on Rendition, you must shoot a .692 or larger bore barrel. Most of the guys are shooting .693 CP's or Empires, some shoot .695 Stiffis, .695 Freak Inserts, a couple .692 UL's
With inspected paint, we get about 1 barrel break per 40 to 60 cases, shooting draxxus paint.
Sometimes we go months without a single barrel break, shooting 15 to 20cases a weekend.
But we're in florida. It's 100 degrees here, no shade with about 90% humidity. Paintballs will swell in front of your own eyes once they hit the air. Paintballs that bore at .687 at your house will bore .693+ after 2 hours at the field
Once the heat causes the air inside the paintball to expand, the humidity causes the shell to start expanding, and the Halo pancakes the ball stack, if you're not at .693 or bigger in florida, you'll be breaking paint all day
