Type in English and you might have better luck.

50 cal is dead, doesn't make sense to waste money on development for it. He probably canceled the 50 cal project when it fell flat on its face.

Bob seemed to grasp early that .50 was a losing proposition. That's why he's done nothing since then.

considering he was playing a scenario game with a 50 cal victory and the paint was bouncing off more than breaking and after lunch he switched back to 68 cal speasks volumes,

I heard the paint was breaking fine, but the lessened joules per impact caused many players to think they hadn't been hit.

Could be.

In the end, for a variety of reasons, it just didn't work and isn't going to take off. It's one of the few things in paintball that was almost universally panned when it came out and died about as quick as it arrived.

Joule. Unit of energy.

*edit: Another interesting tidbit, but how to they measure ~impact in other sports like boxing or MMA? I'll give you a hint... It's PSI.
I own a construction equipment rental store. Jackhammers are rated in Joules. All day long. To measure impact force.

I do rather enjoy wikipedia though.

Also curious... (serious question btw) but do any pneumatic jackhammers get rated in joules or only the electric ones?
Jackhammers are most normally identified by weight, i.e. 60 lb, 90 lb, etc. Which is a statement of the weight of the tool. The problem with that type of identification is that it gives no indication as to how hard the tool hits; it leaves out the statement of its capable "force". And as you reference, there are various types of jackhammers: Electric, Pneumatic, but you left out Hydraulic. There are hydraulic hand-held, and hydraulic mounted (on skid steers, backhoes, or excavators).

Since they are completely drive systems, with hydraulics being non-compressible, pneumatics only working because of compressibility, and electrics working based on magnetic fields, and they have dramatically different levels of efficiency.

In the 60 lb class, a standard issue Bosch Brute (64 working lbs) electric will deliver roughly 28-32 joules of energy per blow; a Sullair 60 lb (65 working lbs) pneumatic will deliver 65-75 joules of energy per blow; and a Hycon 60 (61 working lbs) hydraulic will deliver 85-90 joules of energy per blow.

Of course there is tremendous variation based on the age and condition of the tool, as well as environmental characteristics, such as humidity and temperature. Also, the material being affected, probably concrete or rock, will affect the effectiveness of the tool, because, the quicker the engagement, the faster the energy transfer.

The rating for jackhammers being joules, assumes 3000-3500psi cured concrete, and a moil point, and takes the average over some amount of time. I admit, I do not know the amount of time. However, it does factor in both area and time, so I think it was a proper use of the word.

Nothing against newtons. Them's is pretty badass. I like the Fig ones's.
