If you have ****ty paint, you're going to have ****ty accuracy. If you have premium paint, you're going to have good accuracy. Efficiency doesn't effect accuracy. Consistency effects accuracy. A larger bore helps with consistency. A smaller bore helps with efficiency. Your bore is fine. If you upgrade your paint you'll be shooting ball on ball.

Do be a stickler. Ball on ball != accuracy. It is precision. You could be ball on ball, 4 feet left of what you are aiming at. That is very precise, but not very accurate.

Annoying semantics, but hey.

Precision is group size. Accuracy is group position relative to the center. You want both.

However, i will agree, the greatest deciding factor in both is paint quality.

"ball on ball" "ropes" "lasers" "tits" its all metaphorical. You get what I'm saying though.

What kind of paint have you guys found to be consistent in size and good quality? What's the best of the best?

Old-old school Marballizer/All Star/El Tigre was the absolute **** for consistency and quality. The shell felt almost plastic, it broke everywhere but the gun, the fill was impossible to lose...

/nostalgia

Couldn't help you with any of today's paints - haven't actually played at a field in years.

shooting a paintball gun is aiming by zen anyway. not knowing where your gun is going to place your shots is not the fault of the gun not hitting where you are aiming but knowing where to position the gun to get it to place paint where you want it to. If you're shooting a firearm and your point of impact varies greatly from the point of aim the gun is not zeroed properly. You can't zero a paintball gun. A pitcher doesn't blame the baseball for making him load the bases on walks.
