Arrow Breaking balls Like crazy!

ok guys, today was my first time firing my wrath. I bought a bunch of the cheap "white case" balls from 888 paintball and was shooting those.
I have a Halo b hopper, and was using a 20oz c02 with a remote.

Now, every say, 10 balls or so it would break a ball! right on the bolt, as that was covered in paint, so i dont think it was barrel breaks. My question is, has anyone ever had this problem, and do you think i should look for problems or just try some better grade paint? what brands do you use?

i made sure the eyes were on, and working....has anyone ever had this problem....oh, and except for this, i love the gun!

ok thanks, tommorow i think ill get some good quality paint and try that.

What, roughly, should i set the PSI on the reg to be so im at least close to 280 FPS? just a real general setting, cause i was only on say 200 psi, and it was still breaking balls.

yeah rampage is not bad but i think that pmi premium is better same company and pretty much the same price. but i can get evil for cheaper than the map at my local shop and diablo and many other kinds of paint or very close like buying online w/o the shipping cost.

i just ordered it last week, its the "Charge" that is currently on there website.

Anyway, listen to this, i took and totally inspected my gun. I found a few things. First of all, where the balls come down the feedneck, where they did milling of the bolt and feedneck meet, there was a fairly large "ridge" that was sharp on the rear side of the feedneck port. Now, i also noticed on the front of the feedneck, where it enters the bolt there was also a burr there.
I took out the eyes and the detents, and used some 600, then 800 sandpaper to take down the burrs.....its really smooth now. When i replaced my detents, i used the ones that origionally came in the gun, because the balls had a hard time pushing through the "thicker" ones.

I just lubed it up, and went out with a full hopper of the same balls......

I shot it semi first, then put it full auto 16bps, and shot the whole hopper, and NOT ONE chop!!! plus the gun seems more accurate for some reason....it amazed me, it was ball on ball at a tree i was shooting, which it Definatly wasent doing during the game earlyer.....my own tippmann showed the wrath up as far as accuracy, and that thing dident chop once even though it shoots about 13 bps with the r/t trigger i had with the same balls.

So, as far as im concerened its fixed....we'll see tommorow when we play if my fix really helps, but as of now, i dident have any breaks!!..before they were like every 5 lol!

if you are using an egg then you will be fine with the stock detents but if not then use the better ones the balls are supposed to have a hard time thats what keeps them in the breech.

i suggest if it zap, thats what all the fields around here carry, get primer or cryptic, for another brand, ink'd, its pretty cheap but is a little small i think, or xball bronze, rec sport isnt too bad, and are the stock detents the plastic ones that kinda look like nails?

the stock detents look just like the new ones except the stock ones taper and the good ones dont.

Draxxus Midnights always work the best for me. No breaks so far. They always break on impact. They aren't quite as accurate as others though.

Yeah, this thread should really just die already. Who keeps bringing up these old threads? People shouldnt zombify them, they should let them die in piece. I bet george ramero is probably online trying to make zombie threads, just to sell tickets to his new movie.
