Etek 4 accuracy help

I was shooting around today ( i have been noticing it while shooting it other times too) and my balls would swirl down or shoot our flying to the left/right/up/or down. Any ideas what is going on? I am shooting out of a DW barrel with inserts if that helps

Accuracy is all dependent on two things. 1 cleanliness of the barrel and 2 roundness of the ball. If the barrel is dirty the ball will get stuck in the oil/paint/ dirt and roll . That spinning will make the ball do weird stuff (think apex barrel).If the ball is oval shaped and/or has dimples the ball will not fly straight in the air (turbulence).Most of the time its usually because the ball are misshaped.

Try underboring with whatever paint you buy, but i agree with these guys. Quality of paint makes a difference.
