Reballs

I want to practice my accuracy and snap shooting, but paint is very expensive as you all know. Is using Reball brand reballs worth the price instead of buying inexpensive paint? I am about build a reball cage target to catch all of the balls and dispense them into a bucket. It will be clean, easy, and a good target. Is this worth it, and this may be a dumb question but is it smart to play 1 v 1 with a teammate using reballs? You don't have to answer every question. Any input is helpful
Thanks
Boomer

definitely worth it, i used to run drills in my yard with reballs, put up the catcher and snap shoot at it, or practice running and gunning with it.

We are lucky enough to have a reball field locally, great way to get cheap practice.

Hope someone stops by this topic.

I was going to do some tuning on my marker and picked up a bag of 50 because I've never used them before. Problem is I have a cocker and these balls are rolling through my .679 bore (most of them anyway). Is this normal? It's the smallest sizer I have and they need to be more snug.

I sent a quick note to Actionvillage where I bought them but not sure if they're around on weekends. These are pink and AV is listed as an authorized seller so they have to be legit.

I just bought a bag of Z-Balls, I will let you know if I have the same problem. I have my Freak Barrel kit, so hopefully I can find a good size bore fit for them.

Sorry for the late reply but I didn't think to check back after I got my answer. The company wrote that they run small so it's normal. People with non cocker markers probably would never notice. *They were Reballs.

Sounds like I'm going to assemble a practice cage for my son and I. What about filling tanks at home? I don't want to have to drive 20 minutes every time I'm empty.

You can buy a scuba tank and a tank filler for it to fill your tanks at home. There are videos about it on youtube. I hope this helps!
