So with the barrel I have is it good? and what type of paintballs should I purchase with my barrel? Or would you recommend getting a .685 size barrel.
Is your field FPO ( Field Paint Only) or can you shoot what you want?
Get a barrel that fits the paint you have to/ want to shoot.
.689 is considered large bore. Most paint is closer to 684 or smaller.
Some guys run a .679 all the time.
