Practice shooting with reballs or reusable paint

I love to practice getting my marker in position, snap shooting, left hand shooting ect.

I shot $10 worth of cheap paint yesterday and was thinking it might be a good investment to buy some reballs to practice with. I was thinking of shooting in my garage with blankets set up to catch balls and keep them from getting dirty.
I was thinking about getting a spinning target thats used for airsoft.

Any potential problems with shooting reballs I should know about?

Not sure if it matters but I use a Etek3LT, HPA and have a vlocity sf loader. But I have a tippman SL2000 I can use instead if needed. Also I shoot a freak kit but was thinking about using my stock barrel for shooting reballs just in case any dirt gets on the balls.

No issues that I'm aware of, just make sure to clean them up after you use em.

As said before, there is no issues with reballs that I have ever heard of. However, it is a must to clean them after use. I usually let them soak for a bit then clean them down.

vlocity might have a bit of a problem feeding the reballs but that tippmann hopper will work great...its like a slow pinokio

also match the reballs up with the freak kit, sometimes it doesnt like super tight barrels or super large ones

And also be cognizant that when shot at regular paintball velocity, reballs have a greater potential to crack windows and put some nice dimples in drywall.

Problems arise when you jump into the world of fake/generic reballs (eBay sellers list these all the time). The difference between real and fake reballs is not negligible, trust me you will notice
If you have real ones, and a hopper than feeds them well, you should be good to go.
Make sure your backstop is adequate. I recall my first time using them...my towel swung to the right, the next ball hit my wall and nailed me right on the forehead.
