As for the velocity, I get that the paint is a big deal, and the stuff our local field makes us use definitely isn't all that great, but last time we tested, shots probably ranged from anywhere between 190 and 270 fps (same results with 2 different chronographs). I am not sure I have ever seen paint cause that must inconsistency, but I am not ruling it out.
The other thing with this is I am making him get a new barrel, as the flatline it came with looks a little beat up, and I worry it is scored or even bent to the point of being useless.That may explain part of the velocity issue, so I can probably have him screw on my X7's barrel just to test that.
Yeah, I'd definitely check the velocity without the Flatline.
For lack of a better descriptor, Flatlines can be weird.
