Empire Tracer and first strike rounds

Is it true you have to breach load each individual first strike round or is there a way to load them into 10 round tubes?

Did you mean can you load FS rounds into standard 10-round tubes for storage and transportation on the field? In that case yes, and it's a good idea because normal paintball tubes are far more sturdy than the flimsy tubes FS rounds are sold in.

You can fit up to 13 of them if you load them in one after another nose-to-back, or 10 if you put them into the tube alternating back-to-back, which makes them easier to remove for single-shot loading.

Whenever I play pump I keep at least a tube of FS rounds in my pocket for those "special occasions."

I was hoping u could load them into a stick class feed and avoid single shot loading. But breech loading isn't that bad I guess.

I'm sure you could fabricate a mag with some sheet metal. I've had so many ideas going through my head about how that would work. I wish I had a trracer so I could attempt to make one. Hopefully soon there will be factory made ones ready for order.

just take the ten round feedneck off the BT pistol and put it on the trracer and use that for first strike rounds which what i think might work since everything BT makes feedneck wise can be interchange just like parts on spyders are

Won't work.

On a feed tube like that the FS rounds would have to be placed front to back. Since the backs are hollow the nose would nest into them.

To feed a FS round with a horizontal feed would mean the rounds would have to turn a corner and be orientated correctly. I'm working on something to do that...

Wonder where you got that idea...

Anyway, if you're shooting more than one FS round at a time... you might just be "doin' it wrong..."
