Any way to shoot faster FPS?

I was thinking: for speedball, the FPS is fine as it is at 300, but for scenario, I think that with those 18 round mags it would be cool if someone made the paintball somehow much more gentle so you can shoot double that. Imagine having a woods all gun that kicked a little more like a real gun and shot super hard. It'd be more realistic and fun, but only safe if someone made a crazy fragile, gentle ball. Is this possible?

kind of, but while it actually shoots a bit straighter, it still doesn't get there any faster.

Shooting faster exerts more force on the ball, so if you wanted a "crazy fragile, gentle ball" you're SOL.

Also, I believe its ASTM standard that our goggle lenses are rated for a certain energy.

This is asking for serious injury.

the idea is that I'm asking if there is a way to restructure the ball to shoot faster and have no safety concern. Also, simunition has bigger paintballs flying at ridiculous rates through the air coming out of real guns and it just leaves a gnarly bruise.

If that was the case wouldnt .50 cal be allowed to shoot at a higher fps. Since they are smaller and lighter they dont create the same energy as .68 cal

Its been spoken about a few times in this forum, going years back. IIRC it also has to do with some kind of designation on firearms. Anything too fast and its automatically considered a weapon or something.

Ever been hit by a paintball that is shot at over 300 fps? NOT FUN!

Current paint is proabably about as brittle/gentel as it gets to be shot at <300fps without being instantly turned into soup in your barrel...I cannot see a way to make paint strong enough to survive higher FPS without making it dangersous to the player getting shot...

ASTM and insurance companies have standardized the FPS limit at 300FPS. you probably have an easier time convincing a crocodile to stop eating water buffalo then changing the policies of an insurance company.

Simunition is smaller than .68...It also hurts like hell.

Anything shot at over 500fps (in Canada at least) is automatically designated as a firearm.

Traveling the length of a football field in one second is plenty fast for me TBH.
