50 cal isnt new and never went away world wide...
For those of you ramping for 50 cal, it never died. I still have 50 cal revolvers fromt he old days. Blowguns that are 50 cal and a lot of new 50 cal paintball markers from PalCo in the USA and a ton from China.
Some countries do not allow any projectile above 50 cal and many use 47 and 50 cal paintballs.
Dont sweat 50 cal, fun to play with, safe if you keep the fps down to keep the PSI on impact of flesh the same (you can actually shoot a 50cal at faster fps).
For those that say small paintballs are more likely to break goggles, airsoft has used 6mm paintballs for years and no recorded goggle breaks due to impact of a paintball.
