Is paint still small?

I stopped about a year and a half ago when paint was getting small, is it or are the sizes bigger now?

I think he means the precise bore sizes.

I'm coming across paint smaller than .685, some as small as .680 or even a little less. But this is typically rec or mid grade stuff. Tourney grade may still be closer to the .689 standard, haven't used tourney grade since, well, i played tourneys.

I've never seen anything over .684 in the last year, including evil and marbalizers. Most days I use my .679 insert because the paint is so small.

can not see them getting any bigger, think you have to deal with the fact it's just going to get smaller.

They where too large to begin with. Years ago I was using .689 and .692 inserts for swollen paint, but today I am now using 0.680 to 0.684 inserts.

The caliber is .68, so I would hope paint manufacturers will get it down to .68
