Wrath breaking balls

I just recieved my wrath last nite with a 12.00 inch teardrop barrel
I am shooting xball gold that have never broke in my mongoose reincarnation with a J&J ceramic Ive been buying and using them for months
They were not chopping and they were breaking when I was single firing to chrony it it was 280 fps

I cleaned it after every break and there was nothing on the hammer the balls are not tight in the barrel

I noticed the ball detents seem really tight so i took 1 out and it seemed to improve but still broke some

Any Ideas? Ill take a not ball breaking reincarnation over this any day

Thanks

If you have another gun, try putting them in that one and seeing if they are breaking.

Also make sure your feedneck and hopper are clean of no paint.

You could have paint or something in your feedneck or hopper or hoppers neck causing them to break in the barrel.

Try another barrel on the Wrath if you have one.

Also, take a paintball, stick it in the barrel, if it rolls through it's good size, if it falls through it's too big, and if it sticks, and you have to push it through or blow really hard to get it out, the barrel is too small.

Is it chopping in the barrel or the gun?

I always thought it was the ball rolls out it's too big, if it doesn't go anywhere it's too small, but if it sticks a little in and a light blow gets it out then it's the right size. I always look in at the ball and see if there are 3 contact points between the ball and barrel to show a right size.

Oh, well I heard if it rolls out slow like, then it's a good size.

On open bolt you want to over kill the bore size a little. I make sure it rolls out. But you don't want it rolling out really fast or have the ball look very small in the barrel. (0) You don't want it too look like that, the barrel is too big.

thanks for the responses guys its not chopping and they seem to break right at the start of the barrel last nite I tried the balls in my mongoose and they seemed fine

no paint on hammer though

Any one think it could be the detents my mongoose has a bearing and a spring these seem cheaper so i took 1 out

ill try the stock barrel tonite

Oh ya and eyes were on

Thanks again

Apparently these are " new style " detents or something.

ok what hopper u using?
what is the barrels bore?
check the feedneck again?
Clean eyes?
take out the bolt and look down to see if the barrel is matching the body or if there is a "bump".

if it seems that it is breaking at the beginning like u said... it mite be that ure paint is just to large for the barrel. i know u said it was xball gold and that u shot it from your mongoose... but could it be that (possibly after u used it with the goose) that u left it in the heat or sumthing and it swelled... or ure gooses barrels bore size is just much bigger than the progressive or whatever u said u were using... or a combination? im gonna have to go with the barrel here too...

o yea... so solution is try stock barrel first, than try different paint.
