Thanks tho

Ordered a cheapo extreme rage hopper with the insert so that'll do

Can't wait to get it working with my Spire

Buying an Etek 4 tomorrow - ordered a cheap APE board too... I know, cheaper to buy an ego but want a warranty and don't trust what people have done with their markers!

Just got a new Etek 4 and a .50cal drop in kit for it. Used it for the 1st time yesterday (was cold out) and was using tournament Dark Sports .50cal paint.
It was breaking a lot in the barrel (which you can't shoot through as the fill is so thick) - settings are as stock (HPR turned down and chrono at 315fps +/- 3fps).
It was doing the same on Shady's and Alex's Ego 07's (with .50 cal drop ins) too using the same paint. Would you say increasing the dwell might help? Mine is on stock, but Alex's was on 15ms and still issues.
Switching to recball .50cal had no ball breaks so I think maybe the shell was very brittle?

PS - rocks using .50cal - 1.1L bottle filled to about 2800psi = about 1,400ish shots!

A Spire can hold 500 paintballs!!! AND works flawlessly with an insert from a dual .68 / .50 Extreme Rage hopper

I'd say turn down your lpr and dwell as much as you can...

When I setup my ego I lower my dwell 1 ms until I get bad drop off, then play with my lpr and hpr and usually go back up .5 ms and play with it till its consistent. Lower dwell should fix your problem. Oh and look at the back end of your 50 cal barrel, there is no chamber whatsoever. I had a buddy of mine put a deep chamber on mine, since that I haven't had the first barrel break. Now that I think of it I haven't broke the first ball in the breech or barrel since

What do you mean about 'deep chamber'?

Will fiddle with the settings a bit when I am next at the site (hmmm maybe this weekend if I can be bothered driving up)

Thanks

I'm sorry, chamfer. My phone keeps autocorrecting me. A bevel in the control bore portion of the barrel
