bore size

I'm getting a DYE UL 16 inch barrel today, my choices for bore size are .684 or .691. I live in the north east but plan on moving to Florida in 2 years. Any suggestions on which bore i should choose? Not sure if it matters but I am shooting a mini.

If it were me, I'd get the .684, and pick up another bore later if I found I needed it. Paint in my area has been very small for several years. It would be a lot more critical if you were shooting a pump or a Cocker, but with a Mini (or any open bolt gun, really), it's a little less so.

I like to overbore, but if your paint is always really small then go ahead with the 84

i use a .685 matchstik back on my cyborg and i shoot all the brands of paint you mentioned.
they all roll thru the .685. the paint is just slightly smaller than that so a 684 sould be good. i have zero breaks at all.
