what is the max FPS a paintball gun can shoot

i know the max for fields is 300 but how strong can the gun actually go up to?

like a tippman or spyder... i know highend electros cant shoot much past 300 without blowing the noid

depends on the gun. Ive personally seen guns shoot north of 400FPS.

Depends on the setup... some markers might not be able to break 320, others might be able to punch out balls at 700 (exaggerating). Although I'm not sure the ball would even survive that.

yea many guns can shoot up near 400. Please don't shoot anyone with a marker at that speed though. It is in no way safe.

The last scenario I reffed, a bunch of outlaw ballers came to play and when they came up to the chrono they were in the upper 300's. 3 of them in a row were like 350, 367, 345. I was like WTF people

I had a NYX matrix back in '03, and the ABS would spool it up to about 650fps for the first shot, kicked like a rifle lol, then after that it would shot normally. I miss that marker.

I was standing next to a guy with a PM at the chono, when he decided to keep uping the velocity. He got to about 550, then something blew.

My old 98 shot a few at 450, very inconsistent though.

I got my old Brass Eagle Stringray to shoot at 425 with Proball, just to see how high I could get it without breaking the paint.

With super-rubbery paint like Monsterball you could probably go much higher.

I've been shot with 425 out of a SMG 60. It hurt like a mother. They can go higher than that too.

If I put my HPR really high and put my dwell at say 20 on my ego, I am pretty sure with a good paint to bore match I'll be shooting a lot faster than 350.
