The paint that came with my Eraser was too brittle (too old maybe?) and I had alot of paint breaking in the gun. Buy a fresh jar of Kingman paint and it'll work better for you.
.43 paint doesn't have alot of mass, Kingman made the paint is super-brittle so that you'll get breaks and not bounces.

I did buy a can of 500 yellow rounds of kingman premium paintballs. The problem is the paint seems to small for the barrel and some are still deformed. Does anyone have experience with the rap4 paint?

Understanding that the Rap4's will likely only break on the mask... Has anyone tried using the rap4 .43 cal paintballs with the kingman training line? Do they fire with less issue ... less breaks?

...

I'm looking at picking up a couple of 12gram pistols for some backyard style paintball. Something that I could use to share the fun of paintball with people who wouldn't normally play... maybe get them to goto a field and try the real thing.

The low cost, low pain, and close range make these perfect for it... however I'm fearful of in-marker paintball breaks ruining the fun for these new players. Using a firmer ball like the rap4 sounds like a good option ... just changing the game to more of an honor system like reballs.

My more expensive option is to just get more .68 cal Tiberius gear and chrono them down to 240-250 range. Honestly that's the direction I'm leaning, however I wanted to give the Kingmann training line a serious look first. Seeing as this seems to be what they are made for.

(The BT SA-17 could also be an option, due to cost but so far I have yet to see a very positive review. The TPX is close enough in price to the Tiberius line that I'd rather pay a little more and stick with the gear I've been running. )

68 is the only way to go.
also, dont play at too slow of speed because they might get scared when they play at a real field.

With summer and higher humidity especially in the Illinois area, the Kingman Training .43 caliber paintballs will become more durable. Let it breathe and absorb some of the moisture from the air.

i have had experienced rap4 paintballs. i havent given the chance to shoot on my own equiptment like my vest...but i have shot it on my arm...12" or less and it broke on contact. i have just bought kingmans to see how it will work with my p99. if you say kingman breaks a lot, i have a bad feeling about it putting it into my p99. the spring tension in the clips are high. i will jus have to test it out for sure next week.
but then again, kingman .43 pistols ive seen only goes up to 260ish. my p99 can go way beyond that. got it to shoot 300+.

I just bought my Eraser and had 2 breaks out of the original 100 bottle. I don't know how many you're breaking but I've also heard the balls that come with the marker are junk, and that the bottles you'll buy next will be better.

i bought the gun from ebay, no paintballs were coming with it since it was used.
So i bought a fresh jar of 500 paintballs and i almost have a break on every clip.

i unscrew the velo to minimum but still I have a lot of break... is it the paint that is junk or am i doing something wrong?

I have a chaser but it is the same bolt. I got a chance this morning to go thru about 6 clips of the same bottle as above and even in the humidity I had no breaks. I even let the bottle sit outside to get used to the air and they still worked well.

My 500rd bottle has had no chops after ~180. I think the original paint just sucks.

I have a ram p99 and a kingman chaser
Kingman paint sucks. Period
Ram paintball are much better. But if u get the ram paintball and us it with the chaser u will not get breakage on body. But I just bought the ram .43 cal grande paintballs and they work amazing with the the chaser. They are softer the. The regular ram paintballs but harder then The kinsman paintballs.

Btw. Ram p99 much better gun then the Chaser
