Personally I don't see this happening but crazier things have happened. If it ain't broke don't fix it!
.50 cal advantages:
-more shots in a hopper/pod
-possibly less air used
-possibly less accurate
-less long distance accuracy
-less paint to spot
-less pain to a shot (pain does matter)
.68 cal advantages:
-tried and proven
-markers are standard for this size
-shoot further while being accurate
-more paint fill
-more pain=more noticeable hit
-holds less paint in hopper/pods as compared to .50 cal
There are probably more for the list but time will tell. I'm all up for the idea if it makes the industry move forward. Stimulation is good. Good job joy! Let us know how it goes.
lets not get into all that, its been covered a ton in the .50cal forum.
i cant wait to see how joy places when using .50cal
