Thumbs up Dm12 all over

So i took my DM12 out today and it was shootin' all over the place. Sure wasnt shooting straight. Balls were curving everywhere. Any ideas on why this is happening?

Sounds to me like to had a barrel break last time you played and never cleaned it. If you let old paint sit for a while in your barrel(expecially in a car day after day) it turns to this rubber like substance and is a pain in the *** to get off. Make sure your barrel is completely clean before you put ure stuff away.

Example. I got a new bob long .685 today that had been sitting in a buddys work truck back seat for weeks since he never used it or cleaned his damn truck. Noticed an old barrel break that he had just shot threw put never cleaned. Nearly ripped my bran new bombswab(great swab) apart since it was so hard. I had to soak it in hot soap water for 10min to even get the crap out.

Case in point, if theres crap obstructing your balls proper flight path, its not going to fly correct. Clean your barrel, if its perfectly clean your shooting bad/old/melted paint.

Possibly a balldetent is messed up.
Maybe not likely, but there are 4 things that cause paint to swirl in the air:

1: too high fps
2: dirt/paint in the barrel
3: unmatched bore(large difference)
4: detent that is either broke or stuck.
